No Imperfections!

Naïka Toussaint has booked a guest star role on episode #103 of Netflix’s upcoming series, ‘The Imperfects‘.

Netflix is back in business with the team behind The Order.

The streaming giant has handed out a 10-episode, straight-to-series order for The Imperfects, a sci-fi drama starring Italia Ricci (Chasing Life).

The drama revolves around three twenty-somethings who, following an experimental gene therapy, are turned into monsters who band together to hunt down the scientist responsible and force him to make them human again.

The series is from The Order’s Dennis Heaton, Shelley Eriksen and Chad Oakes and Michael Frislev of Nomad Pictures. Heaton will serve as showrunner, exec producer and writer. Eriksen is set to write and exec produce.

Italia Ricci

Ricci (Designated Survivor) will star as Dr. Sydney Burke, a brilliant scientist looking to fix her past mistakes, both professional and ethical, by allying with Abbi (Rhianna Jagpal, Charmed), Juan (Iñaki Godoy, Who Killed Sara?) and Tilda (Morgan Taylor Campbell, Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist) to track down the scientist responsible for their grim fates.

Rhys Nicholson (RuPaul’s Drag Race Downunder) will play Dr. Alex Sarkov, a former child prodigy who refuses to let anyone or anything interfere with his goal of rewriting the human genome and ushering in the next stage of human evolution. The cast also includes Celina Martin (Other Kingdom) as a test subject and Kyra Zagorsky (The 100) as a rival to find Sarkov.

Three victims of science who are alone and lonely find each other: scientist ABBI SINGH, whose powerful pheromone signals make everyone she comes in contact with become sexually attracted to her; TILDA WEBER, a former singer/guitar player who has lost her ability to make music because of ultra-acute, painful hyperacusis, a type of “super hearing,” and young artist JUAN RUIZ, who under stress or anger transforms into a dangerous monster/beast. Without the medication that keeps them “normal,” the three start going downhill, and set out to find the original scientist, DR. ALEX SARKOV, who was the one who gave them their meds. With Sarkov unhelpful and out of the picture, the three turn to his associate, DR. SYDNEY BURKE, who may or may not be able to help them on her own…

A Very Talented Woman!

Monique Phillips has booked a role in upcoming feature film, Soft Spoken Weepy Cult Child which will be shooting this spring.

We champion the talents of women, both in front and behind the camera, and believe it’s time for fairer funding for female directors, and a realistic representation of women on screen.

Storyline:
It’s the summer of 2011 and the small commuter town of VENUS is suffocating under a heat wave. Wistful HOPE clings to her unapologetic, chain-smoking grandmother LIZA, whose terminal cancer is forcing her to rearrange their lives. On the other side of town, SHIVA’s ritual – a night of masturbation, followed by specific incantations – is interrupted by the POLICE, who hunt down the participants in a frenzy of sand, waves, red carnation and naked bodies and arrest their guru, known as the PROFESSOR. In his absence, Hope and Liza join ADA, Hope’s absentee mother, at THE HOUSE – a multi-level compound offering communal living to a flurry of giggling young women, and boasting a private PINK ROOM for the more sexually adventurous.

‘Maid’ For Netflix!

Beau de Zwager has booked a role in episode #109 of Netflix’s upcoming series, ‘Maid‘.

Maid is an upcoming Netflix “dramedy” coming to our screens in 2021. Maid will adapt Stephanie Land’s best-selling memoir Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother’s Will to Survive.

The new series is created by John Wells (who is working on a first look output deal with Warner Brothers TV) and Molly Smith Metzler who both worked on Showtime’s Shameless. They’ll be working along with Margot Robbie and her production company LuckyChap Entertainment, Molly Metzler will serve as writer, producer, and showrunner for the limited series, while John Wells will serve as the director.

The series was first announced by Netflix back in November 2019.

In her late twenties Land had her first child, became a single mother and started working at a maid service to try and make ends meet. The next several years she spend below the poverty line and relied on several welfare programs to support her family. All of those problems made worse by the fact that after a car accident when she was 16, Land had suffered from PTSD. Land’s struggles led her to start writing about issues of poverty and public policy.

Executive producer John Wells offered his comments about working on Maid in a statement:
“Stephanie tells the searing and remarkably human story of a young woman battling to find a secure future for herself and her infant daughter, Mia, in the face of overwhelming odds and governmental assistance programs of impossible complexity.”

Channing Dungey, vice president of original series at Netflix, commented on the importance and relevance of this story:

Maid is a poignant portrait that chronicles Stephanie Land’s strife and victories, and has the power to connect with our members around the world as they identify with her struggles and root for her success.”

It was announced that The Leftovers and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood star Margaret Qualley will be the series lead for Maid. Qualley will play Alex, a single mother who turns to housekeeping to try and make ends meet as she battles against poverty, homelessness, and bureaucracy.

Along with Margaret Qualley, the Maid cast will feature Nick Robinson (Jurassic World) and Anika Noni Rose (The Princess and the Frog, The Good Wife).

We should be expecting Maid to be released on Netflix by the end of 2021.
