Hulu has given a series order to the comedy “Dollface” starring Kat Dennings.

The streamer has given the series a 10-episode order. It follows a young woman (Dennings) who, after being dumped by her longtime boyfriend, must deal with her own imagination in order to literally and metaphorically re-enter the world of women, and rekindle the female friendships she left behind.

Ira Ungerleider will serve as showrunner with Margot Robbie and Brett Hedblom and Tom Ackerley of Robbie’s LuckyChap banner executive producing as well. Clubhouse Pictures’ Bryan Unkeless and Scott Morgan are executive producers along with Nicole King and Stephanie Laing. Matt Spicer directed the pilot and is an executive producer. Laing will direct multiple episodes as well. ABC Signature Studios produces.

And as a character, Dallas is somewhat uncharted territory for any actress. She nominally does for, say, Han Solo what Rick Sanchez does for Doc Brown—honing in on that character’s distinguishing element and underlining the shit out of it. The difference is that female characters in these kinds of shows a) aren’t normally the lead character (Robo and Dallas argue over who is whose sidekick, but Robo is definitely the Watson here), and b) they don’t normally get to be so roguish. “It wasn’t like when I signed up they were like ‘oh, we should give her a bigger role,’” says Dennings. “This was the show… That’s what attracted me so much—that she’s playing the role that, typically, a dude would play.” For her, the atypical character has paid off, creatively. “She is my favorite character I’ve ever played,” she adds. “Ever. In my entire career. I get so much joy from saying the things that she says.”

Kat Dennings to Star in ABC Comedy Based on Blog ‘How May We Hate You’

Posted by Renee on 17 February 2018 with 0 Comments

Kat Dennings has landed a lead role in the forthcoming ABC comedy pilot based on the book and blog “How May We Hate You,” TheWrap has confirmed.

The untitled single-camera, ensemble comedy will focus on two co-workers who cater to the needs of guests at a high-end resort.

Dennings has been cast as Ellie, a guest services specialist who is forced to wear a plastic smile while dealing with hotel clientele who pay more per night than she has to pay in rent each month. While in debt from three botched attempts at different grad schools, she’s working to make ends meet with her best friend Gabe at the fancy hotel.

Kat joins ‘Dollface’

Posted by Renee on 23 November 2017 with 0 Comments

Kat Dennings has found her next series vehicle after 2 Broke Girls. She is set to star in Dollface for Hulu. She plays a young woman who, after being dumped by her longtime boyfriend, must metaphorically re-enter the world of women, and rekindle the female friendships she left behind. Jordan Weiss is the writer, creator and executive producer. Veep‘s Stephanie Laing will direct the pilot and be a producer.

2 Broke Girls ended last May after six seasons and set a record for the richest off-network syndication deal when it sold to TBS.

The catalyst here as producers are Margot Robbie and Brett Hedblom from LuckyChap Entertainment and Bryan Unkeless and Scott Morgan from Clubhouse Pictures. They just produced together I, Tonya, the Craig Gillespie-directed black comedy about the rise and fall of Olympic figure skater Tonya Harding that will be released next month by 30WEST and NEON after becoming the biggest sale at the Toronto Film Festival.

LuckyChap and Clubhouse will produce the Hulu show alongside Management 360’s Nicole King, and Dennings.

Dennings is repped by Management 360, UTA and Harris Hartman; LuckyChap by Management 360, CAA and attorney Jeff Bernstein; Weiss by CAA and Mosaic; and Laing by CAA and Principato-Young.

This is the first TV project for LuckyChap as well as Clubhouse, latter of which is repped by Eric Suddleson.
