Catherine Keener joins Maya Rudolph’s Amazon comedy
VOD News | On 04, Dec 2017
Catherine Keener has signed on to star in Maya Rudolph’s Amazon comedy series.
The project was announced earlier this year, a part of a wave of new commissions from Amazon Studios. The comedy is co-exec-produced by Rudolph and fellow Saturday Night Live veteran Fred Armisen and is written and created by Alan Yang (co-creator of Master of None) and Matt Hubbard. Dave Becky and Tim Sarkes will also exec-produce, alongside Yang and Hubbard.
Not much is known about the untitled show, although Deadline reports that Armisen and Rudolph will play a married couple in Southern California. Now, they’ve got an Oscar nominee on their doorstep, with Keener expected to play a mysterious new neighbour who moves in next door. The casting arrives hot on the heels of Keener’s role in the hugely acclaimed Get Out and ahead of her next starring role in the upcoming Sicario sequel, Soldado.
The single-camera comedy was given a straight-to-series order by Amazon Studios and will likely premiere next year. For more on what’s coming soon to Amazon Prime Video, click here.
