Demonstrating our ability to achieve new levels of greatness in our “later” years, it would be fun to see sharp-witted Pamela Adlon hit Park City with her directorial debut — a project that was actually recently picked up by the NEON folks. After a half dozen seasons of full creative output with “Better Things,” Adlon is using her “voice” venturing into more comedy terrain with Babes – a project developed by Ilana Glazer and Josh Rabinowitz and which features Glazer, Hasan Minhaj, Michelle Buteau, John Carroll Lynch, Stephan James and Oliver Platt. The trades announced the project during the summer of last year so we’re thinking this is more than ready.
Gist: The story follows the aggressively single Eden, who becomes pregnant from a one-night stand and leans on her married best friend (and mother of two), Dawn, to guide her through the gestation and beyond.
Production Co./Producers: Ashley Fox, Susie Fox, Ilana Glazer, Josh Rabinowitz.
U.S. Distributor: NEON.
