On Becoming A God In Central Florida
Showtime has released the official trailer and poster for “On Becoming a God in Central Florida,” their new dark comedy series starring Golden Globe nominee Kirsten Dunst.
Set in a small Orlando-adjacent town in 1992, Dunst plays a minimum-wage water park employee who lies, schemes and cons her way up the ranks of Founders American Merchandise (FAM) – the cultish, flag-waving, multibillion-dollar pyramid scheme that drove her to ruin in the first place.
Determined to make a better life for herself, Krystal dives deep into FAM and develops a tangled relationship with FAM’s most loyal and fanatical follower until her business begins to affect those closest to her. The ten-episode series will premiere on August 25th.
Kevin Smith has announced a script reading event for his unfilmed third “Clerks” film to benefit First Avenue Playhouse by raising money for theater repairs – the filmmaker hoping to save a local landmark with the one-night-only event.

There are only 80 seats available at $100 apiece and all of the money is going directly to the theater. [Source: The Wrap]
