Pike Odowd Lead Hornby Frears Comedy Series

Rosamund Pike and Chris O’Dowd are set to star in a Stephen Frears-directed short-form comedy series “State of the Union” for SundanceTV.

The pair plays a couple who meet in a pub immediately before their weekly marital therapy session. Each episode pieces together how their lives were, what drew them together and what has started to pull them apart.

The series consists of ten ten-minute episodes penned by famed author Nick Hornby and produced by See-Saw Films. Hornby and Frears executive produce and shooting will commence later this summer in London.
