Elizabeth Olsen Will Star in a Dramedy Series for Facebook!

Elizabeth Olsen Will Star in a Dramedy Series for Facebook!”

Facebook is ramping up their original content game in a big way, giving a series order to an Elizabeth Olsen-starring dramedy. Facebook Watch is a video platform where episodic content, community and conversation come together.

Some of the Avengers show up; Blur plays a song from their new album. Much about the premise is shrouded in secrecy, though our sister site Deadline reports Olsen will portray a grieving widow who "reconnects with relationships from her past". Originally, it was set to air on Showtime, but negotiations fell through. "Kit's story has been near and dear to me for years and I can't wait to share our dark, funny, and complicated show with the world". The series has been given a 10-episode order.

Facebook has been shelling out major money and partnering with various media companies to develop original episodic video content in the a year ago, and it now seems like the social media giant is setting its sights on higher brow shows. Award winning casting director Avy Kaufman (The Night Of, Damages, The Alienist, Life of Pi) has signed on to cast the series. Steinkellner is a playwright whose debut graphic novel, Quince, will publish this fall. James Ponsoldt will executive produce and direct the pilot and additional episodes. She is also working on a TV adaptation of Mad About Men for Sundial Pictures.

Big Beach TV is now in production on the Starz series Vida from showrunner Tanya Saracho, whose next project Brujas they are also developing.

Olsen is repped by Gersh, Brillstein Entertainment Partners, and Sloane Offer. She is repped by ICM Partners, Circle of Confusion and Felker Toczek Suddleson and Abramson.

If we talk about other crews of this new Facebook series, there will be Lizzy Weiss on board as showrunner, Kit Steinkellner as creator and lead writer.
