When you think of Glenn Close, the last thing that comes to mind is “horror”, and yet the Emmy-winning actress recently had a prominent role in the must-see zombie film The Girl With All the Gifts. This time, however, she will play one of the undead!
Close has been tapped to star in Amazon’s half-hour comedy pilot “Sea Oak”, reports THR.
The pilot, picked up in March, is described as a mix of zombie drama and family revenge comedy.
“Sea Oak” revolves around Aunt Bernie (Close), a meek, unmarried woman with no children in working-class Rust Belt City who dies tragically in a home invasion. Compelled by sheer force of dissatisfaction, she comes back from the dead full of rage and determined to get the life she never had. She proceeds to inflict a range of demands on what’s left of her nuclear family, including a quasi-stripper nephew and two feckless nieces, who live in a low-end subsidized hellhole of a housing complex called Sea Oak.
Written by George Saunders (Lincoln in the Bardo), Jonathan Krauss exec produces through his Affiliated Pictures banner. Lael Smith and Keir McFarlane co-executive produce.
