Hulu announced a 10-episode series order for Dollface, a new comedy from ABC Signature Studios which will star Kat Dennings (2 Broke Girls), who is also set to executive produce the comedy alongside Creator and Writer Jordan Weiss (Harley Quinn) and Showrunner Ira Ungerleider. Additional executive producers include Margot Robbie, Brett Hedblom and Tom Ackerley for LuckyChap Entertainment; Bryan Unkeless and Scott Morgan for Clubhouse Pictures; Nicole King and Stephanie Laing (Vice Principals). Matt Spicer (Ingrid Goes West) will executive produce and direct the first episode.
The comedy follows a young woman 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.
What They are Saying:
- Kat Dennings: “Reading Jordan’s script was like opening a window into my own brain. 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.”
- Craig Erwich, Hulu’s SVP of Content: “Jordan is an exciting, new voice that has something specific and provocative to say about her generation. 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.“
- LuckyChap Entertainment and Clubhouse Pictures: “We are thrilled to expand our partnership into television and produce Dollface with such fantastic and collaborative partners as we continue to champion strong and unique female characters onscreen. We couldn’t be more excited that Kat Dennings will take on this incredible and complex character.”
