Hulu has given a series order to “Dollface” a comedy starring and executive produced by Kat Dennings, with Margot Robbie attached as an executive producer as well.
Dennings will play a young women 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.
The project comes from writer Jordan Weiss, ABC Signature Studios, with Robbie and Brett Hedblom from LuckyChap Entertainment producing alongside Bryan Unkeless and Scott Morgan from Clubhouse Pictures, and Nicole King and Stephanie Laing. Matt Spicer will executive produce and direct the first episode.
“Jordan is an exciting, new voice that has something specific and provocative to say about her generation,“ said Hulu’s senior VP of content, Craig Erwich. “As we seek out fresh perspectives and new, thought-provoking projects, ‘Dollface’ is exactly the type of relatable, yet distinct, series we know our audience will love. We can’t wait to work with Jordan and Kat, as well as our partners at ABC Signature Studios, LuckyChap Entertainment and Clubhouse Pictures, to bring this series to life.“
“Angie Tribeca” executive producer Ira Ungerleider will serve as showrunner. The 10-episode series will begin production next year.
“Reading Jordan’s script was like opening a window into my own brain,” said Dennings. “I’m so inspired by the stellar team we have around us and the unique world of this show, especially with Matt Spicer at the helm.”
The series marks Hulu’s third project with ABC Signature Studios following the recent pick-up of “Little Fires Everywhere,” as well as the first joint TV production project for LuckyChap Entertainment and Clubhouse Pictures, who together recently produced Robbie’s “I, Tonya” and who are in active pre-production on the untitled “Birds of Prey” film at Warner Bros.
