Episode notes

Welcome to the first episode in our new format! We are splitting up the table reads and writer interviews into separate episodes. Let us know what you think! We are starting the new format with what we think is one of our all-time best episodes. It’s a pilot from the Golden Globe-nominated writer/director of Promising Young Woman, Emerald Fennell. Emerald was also the showrunner of Season Two of Killing Eve, and her acting credits include Call the Midwife and The Crown. Her pilot is called Space Bound, it follows an alien who goes on an intergalactic coffee run and finds herself stranded on “the worst planet in the universe”: Earth. A group of eccentric friends takes her in and she discovers she might actually be the most functional person in the world.

The cast for this one is out of this world! It stars academy award nominee Carey Mulligan as G456, Sam Richardson as Dan, academy award nominee Richard E. Grant as The Overlord,  Max Greenfield as Phil, Emmy nominee Rainn Wilson as Tall Man, Craig Cackowski as Round Man, Lolly Adefope as Venetia, Ellen Wong as Karen, Marcus Bishop-Wright as Detective Fairbanks/Pervy Guy/Terrifying Man/Barista, Greg Santos as Obnoxious Guy/Bongo Drummer/Cop 2, Shulie Cowen as Fancy Dog Owner/Andie Macdowell/Cop 1/Anchor, and Andrew Reich with stage directions. Enjoy it!
