Washington: Hollywood stars Rosamund Pike and Chris O’Dowd will now be paired in an upcoming American sitcom.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Rosamund Pike and Chris O’Dowd will be paired up for a new TV comedy ‘State of the Union’.
Here every episode will be 10 minutes in length.
“I am so pleased to be working again with Stephen, Rosamund, and Chris,” The Hollywood Reporter quoted Nick Hornby, the writer for the sitcom, as saying.
“I first met Stephen when he directed High Fidelity, Rosamund when she revealed her wonderful comic talent in ‘An Education’, and Chris when he made the forthcoming ‘Juliet, Naked’ and I think they will make a tremendous team. ‘State of the Union’ is an unusual project, so it’s all the more gratifying that we have managed to attract talent of this magnitude,” he added.
The upcoming sitcom revolves around a couple (Pike and O’Dowd) and their weekly meetings in a bar post, which they head off for a couples’ therapy.
The 10 episodes of this sitcom will be directed by Stephen Frears, while Amy Jackson will produce it along with Jamie Laurenson, Hakan Kousetta, Iain Canning, and Emile Sherman.
Hornby is also the executive producer for this series.
