Catherine Zeta-Jones is set to star in the Facebook Watch series “Queen America” which has been given a ten-episode straight-to-series order.
Set in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the dark comedy follows Vicki Ellis, the most renowned (and ruthless) pageant coach in the state, and the hapless Samantha Stone who hopes Vicki can mold her into worthwhile contender for the title of Miss America.
Vicki is desperately sought after by young women competing to be Miss America for one reason – she can turn any girl into a winner. But when she gets paired with the beautiful but unpolished Samantha, her reputation might be at stake.
Meaghan Oppenheimer (“Fear the Walking Dead”) created, pens and executive produces the series alongside Bruna Papandrea, Janice Williams, Casey Haver, Guymon Casady and Suzan Bymel.
Facebook Watch is a new video platform from the social media giant and is available for free on mobile, desktop and Facebook’s TV apps.
