Endeavour Content is set to handle global sales for State Of The Union, Nick Hornby’s new short-form comedy series which is being produced for U.S. cable network SundanceTV. Endeavor will launch the ten-part series to international buyers at MIPCOM later this month.
State Of The Union follows Louise (Rosamund Pike) and Tom (Chris O’Dowd) who meet in a pub immediately before their weekly marital therapy session. With each successive episode we piece together how their lives were, what drew them together and what has started to pull them apart. Each episode runs ten minutes. The series is being produced by See-Saw Films and directed by Stephen Frears.
“Nick Hornby’s sharp and witty script is complemented by Stephen Frears’ intelligent direction and Rosamund and Chris shine in their performances as a married couple in crisis”, said Gary Marenzi, Head of Entertainment Sales and Partnerships for Endeavor Content. “We are delighted to be partnering with See-Saw Films once again in presenting buyers with a comedic look into the universal story of marital bliss and misery.”
While See-Saw Films’ Chief Operating Officer of Television Hakan Kousetta and Head of Television Jamie Laurenson added: “We are so proud of how this incredible team came together, both in front of and behind the camera. The show is the kind of unique and innovative project we love to champion at See-Saw and having Endeavor Content on board to represent the series is the icing on the cake.”
