The duo are signed on to Jenji Kohan’s groundbreaking upcoming Netflix series, Social Distance, the first major series diving into life during the coronavirus pandemic, which is being shot remotely to keep cast and crew safe. Kohan will executive produce, alongside Hilary Weisman Graham, Diego Velasco, Tara Herrmann and Blake McCormick. Bruce and Lauren are also working with Kohan on the Netflix series Teenage Bounty Hunters. Maddie Phillips and Anjelica Bette Fellini star as fraternal twin sisters who “dive into the world of bail skipping baddies while still navigating the high stakes of teenage love and sex”. Creator and co-producer Kathleen Jordan and showrunner Robert Sudduth emphasized to Variety that “we’re not here to judge, we’re here to embrace the nuance. This show is really about two young women who live their lives by their own rules, haters be damned.”
Other new projects include the HBO Max pilot Vegas High, a coming of age drama set in the 1990s, which follows of the story of Laura (Raegan Rozas) who is caught between the fast-paced lifestyle of Las Vegas, and her Mormon faith and community. The pilot is executive produced by writer Sarah-Raquel Jimenez and director Gillian Robespierre, alongside Michael Showalter and Jordana Mollick. Finally, Lauren and Bruce are supervising the TBS series Chad (starring and executive produced by Nasim Pedrad), and the Quibi drama series Swimming with Sharks, which is a contemporary update of George Huang’s 1994 movie which “both celebrates and skewers the Hollywood studio system”. The series stars Kiernan Shipka and Diane Kruger, and tells the story of a young female assistant who is “at the center of a studio filled with manipulators, schemers, and intrigue – little do they know she is poised to outwit them all”.
