Pilot Spotlight: 'Salem Rogers: Model of the Year 1998'

11 February 2015 6:18 PM, PST | Hollywonk | See recent Hollywonk news »

A decade in rehab has failed to tame abrasive former supermodel Salem Rogers (Leslie Bibb, About a Boy), Model of the Year 1998. Now that she’s been let loose on the world, hard-partying Salem is intent on recreating her former success and glamorous lifestyle in a new world she barely recognizes. She tracks down her browbeaten former assistant (SNL alum Rachel Dratch), who’s since built a career as an author of self-help books, and stops at nothing to enlist her in her plans to return to the spotlight – whatever it takes.

Rachel Dratch, Leslie Bibb

Salem Rogers, Season 1, Episode 1: “Pilot”

Written by Lindsey Stoddart

Directed by Mark Waters

Released January 15, 2015 by Amazon

The streaming service’s latest round of pilots was no exception in this regard, and one of their forays into comedy comes in the form of Salem Rogers. Marking the writing debut of actress Lindsey Stoddart, the show focuses on the exploits of a former supermodel trying to re-enter the world after a decade in rehab, with her hapless former assistant turned attempted self-help guru in tow. Unfortunately, the pilot suffers from a degree of indecision about what direction it wants a potential series to go in, which is reflected in the writing and pulls down the episode, despite the best efforts of the talented cast. »
