Glenn Close is set for her first series role since Damages concluded, starring in an Amazon pilot, Sea Oak.
The pilot, picked up in March, is described as a mix of zombie drama and family revenge comedy.
Close will play Aunt Bernie, a meek, unmarried woman with no children in a working-class Rust Belt city who dies tragically in a home invasion.
Compelled by sheer force of dissatisfaction, she comes back from the dead full of rage and determined to get the life she never had. She proceeds to inflict a range of demands on what’s left of her nuclear family, including a quasi-stripper nephew and two feckless nieces, who live in a low-end subsidised hellhole of a housing complex called Sea Oak.
The project is written by George Saunders (Lincoln in the Bardo) and marks Close’s first series role since Damages concluded in 2012.
