YouTube is finalising a deal for a ten-episode one-hour series order for the dark comedy “On Becoming A God In Central Florida” which will star and be executive produced by Kirsten Dunst and George Clooney.
Previously in development at AMC and penned by Robert Funke and Matt Lutsky, the action is set in Orlando, Florida in the early 1990s. Dunst plays Krystal Gill, a minimum-wage-earning water park employee who will eventually scheme her way up the ranks of the Amway-like company ‘Founders American Merchandise’ – a cultish, flag waving, multi-billion dollar pyramid scheme that drove her family to ruin.
Esta Spalding will serve s showrunner while Charlie McDowell (“The Discovery”) will direct. Smokehouse Pictures and TriStar Television will produce the series which is set to premiere on YouTube Premium in 2019.
