Alison Jenny (Juno, Mom) joined the cast Mrs. American Piea comedy series based on the author’s book Juliet McDaniel. The series is designed Laura Dern, which also produces and also looks forward to starring. She joins Kristen Wiig (Saturday night live, Bridesmaids) in the cast. The series is adapted by the writer Abe Sylvia (Eyes of Tammy Faye) and the director Tate Taylor (Latest news in Yuba County).
«Mrs. American Pie unfolds in the powder keg era in the early 1970s and tells the story of Maxine Simmons (Wieg) and her attempt to take a seat at America’s most exclusive table: Palm Beach High Society. While Maxine tries to cross that impenetrable line between those who have and those who don’t, the series asks the same questions that confuse us today: who will sit at the table, how will you get a seat at the table and what do you sacrifice to get? “
Jenny will play Evelyn, a Palm Beach staff member and a member of high society.
The series was developed by Dern and her partner-producer James Lehmans through their banner Jaywalker Pictures. In addition to writing, Sylvia will perform the series. Taylor will be directing and executive producer along with his partner-producer John Norris through their banner Wyolah Entertainment. Apple Studios produces.
It sounds like a great series, and with Jenny, Wig and maybe Dern starring, it’s simple. I look forward to the inspection Mrs. American Pie when it hits Apple TV +.
