Hulu Orders Comedy ‘Dollface’ Starring Kat Dennings To Series
Hulu has given a series order to ‘Dollface‘, a new comedy series starring ‘2 Broke Girls’ Kat Dennings, it has been announced.
The 10-episode series follows a young woman (Dennings) who – after being dumped by her longtime boyfriend – must deal with her own imagination in order to literally and metaphorically re-enter the world of women, and rekindle the female friendships she left behind.
Dennings will exec produce alongside creator/writer Jordan Weiss (‘Harley Quinn’) and showrunner Ira Ungerleider (‘Angie Tribeca’, ‘Friends’). “Reading Jordan’s script was like opening a window into my own brain,” commented Dennings. “I’m so inspired by the stellar team we have around us and the unique world of this show, especially with Matt Spicer at the helm.”
Additional executive producers include Margot Robbie, Brett Hedblom and Tom Ackerley for LuckyChap Entertainment; Bryan Unkeless and Scott Morgan for Clubhouse Pictures; Nicole King and Stephanie Laing (‘Vice Principals’). Matt Spicer (‘Ingrid Goes West’) will executive produce and direct the first episode.
“Jordan is an exciting, new voice that has something specific and provocative to say about her generation,” said Hulu’s SVP of Content, Craig Erwich. “As we seek out fresh perspectives and new, thought-provoking projects, Dollface is exactly the type of relatable, yet distinct, series we know our audience will love. We can’t wait to work with Jordan and Kat, as well as our partners at ABC Signature Studios, LuckyChap Entertainment and Clubhouse Pictures, to bring this series to life.”
Kat Dennings is probably best known for her role as Max in ‘2 Broke Girls’, and starring as Darcy in Marvel’s ‘Thor’ movies. She recently wrapped production on the independent comedy feature ‘Friendsgiving’ starring opposite Malin Akerman and Jane Seymour.
‘Dollface‘ is set to begin production in 2019. As it’s a Hulu show, there’s no news on a UK broadcaster yet, but we’ll let you know when we hear something.
