Glenn Close to star in Amazon zombie comedy pilot Sea Oak

18 June 2017 12:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Amazon is looking to get in on the zombie business with the upcoming TV comedy pilot Sea Oak, and THR is reporting that Emmy and Golden Globe winner Glenn Close (Damages) is set to headline the show, which is described as a mix of “zombie drama and family revenge comedy”.

Written by George Saunders (Lincoln in the Bardo), Sea Oak follows ” Aunt Bernie (Close), a meek, unmarried woman with no children in a working-class Rust Belt City who dies tragically in a home invasion. Compelled by sheer force of dissatisfaction, she comes back from the dead full of rage and determined to get the life she never had. She proceeds to inflict a range of demands on what’s left of her nuclear family, including a quasi-stripper nephew and two feckless nieces, who live in a low-end subsidized hellhole of a housing complex called Sea Oak.”

Glenn Close to Topline Amazon Zombie Pilot “Sea Oak”

16 June 2017 11:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Glenn Close in “The Girl with All the Gifts

Looks like Glenn Close has a fondness for stories about the undead. Earlier this year the Emmy winner starred in zombie sci-fi film “The Girl with All the Gifts,” and now comes word that she’ll topline “Sea Oak,” a half-hour Amazon pilot that The Hollywood Reporter describes as “a mix of the zombie drama and family revenge comedy.” Novelist George Saunders penned the project. No word on who will direct.

The show follows Aunt Bernie (Close), “a meek, unmarried woman with no children in working-class Rust Belt City who dies tragically in a home invasion,” THR summarizes. “Compelled by sheer force of dissatisfaction, she comes back from the dead full of rage and determined to get the life she never had. She proceeds to inflict a range of demands on what’s left of her nuclear family, including a quasi-stripper nephew and two feckless nieces, who live in a low-end subsidized hellhole of a housing complex called Sea Oak.”

“Sea Oak” marks the six-time Oscar nominee’s first series regular role since FX/DirecTV’s “Damages.” The legal drama ran for five seasons and concluded in 2012. Close earned two Emmys for her role in the show, and also snagged an Emmy in 1995 for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries or a Special for “Serving in Silence: The Margarethe Cammermeyer Story.”

Other zombie-centric shows currently on air include The CW’s “iZombie,” co-created by Diane Ruggiero, and Netflix’s Drew Barrymore-starrer “The Santa Clarita Diet.”

Close is currently on Broadway reprising a role that won her a Tony, Norma Desmond in “Sunset Boulevard.” Her upcoming projects include a film adaptation of Meg Wolitzer’s novel “The Wife.” Written by Jane Anderson (“Olive Kitteridge,” “Mad Men”), the drama sees Close playing a woman best known as the wife of an incredibly successful writer. She’s dedicated years of her life to nurturing her husband’s career, but a revelation causes her to reconsider their relationship and her future. The film is in post-production.

Glenn Close to Topline Amazon Zombie Pilot “Sea Oak” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

‘Bloodline’ Ep Talks Final Season Twists, Ben Mendelsohn’s Return, and ‘Intriguing’ Finale

23 May 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Will the secrets all come out?

Last season of “Bloodline” ended on as taut a cliffhanger as ever, with all the Rayburns’ secrets on the verge of being exposed. Desperate as ever to protect himself, Kevin (Norbert Leo Butz) ended up brutally murdering Detective Marco Diaz (Enrique Murciano), when he realized Marco had figured out that John (Kyle Chandler) had killed Danny (Ben Mendelsohn). Meg (Linda Cardellini) was on the verge of spilling all the family’s secrets to their mother (Sissy Spacey). And our erstwhile hero John Rayburn (Kyle Chandler), was running away from it all, driving away into the Florida darkness.

That this third season — which debuts May 26 on Netflix — would be the last came as a surprise to all involved, when Netflix made the announcement last fall. Here, executive producer Todd A. Kessler — who created and produces the drama along with Daniel Zelman and Glenn Kessler — tells Variety how that decision impacted the plans »

Hulu Orders ‘Crash & Burn’ Pilot Based on Michael Hassan Bestseller (Exclusive)

9 May 2017 5:42 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Hulu is stepping up its drama game, ordering a pilot for “Crash & Burn,” based on the 2013 bestseller by Michael Hassan, Variety has learned exclusively.

The series, which is created by writer/showrunner Aaron Zelman (“Damages”), tracks the lives of three troubled suburban boys through three different time periods starting in the ’90s. Equal parts mystery, thriller, and character study, “Crash & Burn” aims to honestly depict the humor, aggression and awkwardness of pubescent boys. The mystery of the first season is centered around an attempted school shooting, and the extent to which these boys may have played a part.

Hulu has fast tracked production for this summer, with delivery of the pilot set for September. The project hails from Sony TV.

Should Hulu greenlight the show, the plan is for a 10-episode first season to shoot in New York City or Canada.

Trailer Watch: Elle Fanning Is a Transgender Teen Fighting to Transition in “3 Generations”

10 April 2017 8:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

“3 Generations”

The hardest part of my day is knowing everybody still sees me as a girl,” says Ray (Elle Fanning) in a new trailer for Gaby Dellal’s “3 Generations.” While Ray is part of a progressive family — he was raised by his mother, grandmother, and his grandmother’s partner in New York City — the transgender teen’s decision to transition is still met with some resistance. “Why can’t she just be a lesbian?” his grandmother Dolly (Susan Sarandon) asks. As his mother, Maggie (Naomi Watts), is forced to remind her, Ray’s not a lesbian — he’s a boy.

Maggie supports Ray’s journey, but the single mom needs to track down his biological dad (Tate Donovan, “Damages”) to get his legal consent to allow Ray’s transition. “She’s a kid. What if she changes her mind?” Ray’s dad questions.

“About Ray” has been given an “R” rating by the MPAA. The Weinstein Company is challenging the classification. Dellal commented, “As a mother and a filmmaker, I want to speak to kids, to parents, and to grandparents everywhere in a common language of love and inclusion about a subject matter that is not only real and complicated, but one that is important and alive today. There are kids all over this country that are still too fearful to speak out and to step out; they’re too alone to fight, lacking the kinds of support that would let them feel free to be themselves,” she observed. “Our story wants to humanize this family experience, and to take the mystery out of the secrets. I hope the MPAA will reconsider this ‘R’ rating and encourage children to see this story and feel connected.”

The project has been met with mixed reactions since it was announced. While many are happy to see a film centered on a trans character, the fact that a cis-gender actress was cast for the role of a trans boy received a lot of criticism.

Dellal’s previous credits include “Angels Crest,” “On a Clear Day,” and “The Ride.” She co-wrote “3 Generations” with Nikole Beckwith (“Stockholm, Pennsylvania”). The film hits theaters May 19 and will open the Bentonville Film Festival May 2.
