We’re back to dead pilots this month! Get excited for our Max Fun Drive ELSEWHERE by Corinne Kingsbury (In The Dark) and Noelle Valdivia (Little America). Their show follows Grey, a successful but shallow woman who, after dying in a car accident, realizes she prioritized all the wrong things in her life. Now, she has a second chance to achieve enlightenment against all odds – in purgatory. We know you’re all avid TV watchers so this logline probably makes you think of The Good Place. You’re not wrong for thinking that! In Andrew’s interview you’ll hear Corinne and Noelle talk about the coincidental parallels between Elsewhere and The Good Place. How they felt after seeing The Good Place get picked up to series while they were still developing their pilot. They also discuss their origin stories into the business, the double standards executives set for female characters and how much they hated pitching Elsewhere, despite selling it. Enjoy!
ELSEWHERE stars Kate Walsh as Grey Chapman, Nichole Bloom as Kimmy, Tig Notaro as Gabe, Ego Nwodim as Liu, Asif Ali as Steve/Doctor #1/Larry/Football Player/, Martin Starr as Ziggy, Humphrey Kerr as James, Carla Cackowski as Claire/Mother/Female Voice, Craig Cackowski as Hector/Gerstein/Doctor #2/Doctor, Ayden Mayeri as Lady/Cool Girl/Ellen Nubuck/Female Voice, and Andrew Reich with stage directions.
