DirecTV is continuing its push into original scripted programming with a 10 episode straight-to-series order to Full Circle, a new drama series from award-winning screenwriter Neil LaBute. The pick up follows on from DirecTV ordering their first original series last year titled Rogue, which is currently airing on the Audience network.
Penned by LaBute, Full Circle is said to examine the human condition and relationships through a series of conversations between 11 people whose lives, unbeknownst to them, are intertwined. The series is being described as a modern day La Ronde meets My Dinner with Andre as it explores the nature of human contact and true togetherness in our current technology-driven world. Full Circle is being produced by Momentum TV, with Nick Hamm and LaBute serving as executive producers. Production is slated to commence this Summer at DirecTV’s Los Angeles Broadcasting Center. FremantleMedia International is handling global sales.
“We are thrilled that our quest to provide our customers with exclusive, original and daring programming led Audience to ‘Full Circle’ and Neil LaBute,” said Chris Long, Senior Vice-President of Entertainment and Production, for DirecTV. “In dissecting how closely connected we all are, ‘Full Circle’ will take viewers on a journey that will traverse the full range of human emotion. I know the series will flourish under the stewardship of Neil and Nick Hamm.”
