Glenn Close set for next series role

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.
