‘Sweetbitter’ Panel Defends Its Place In #MeToo Era

Jan 14, 2018       Category: Press ,Sweetbitter       Comments: 0

The star and creators of Starz’ new half-hour drama series Sweetbitter came to TCA today, where they took some uncharacteristically tough questions. The series is based on Stephanie Danler’s national best-selling novel of the same name about 22-year-old Tess who, shortly after arriving in New York City in 2006, lands a job at a celebrated downtown restaurant, where she’s introduced to drugs, alcohol, love, lust, dive bars, and fine dining.

TV critics, however, had #MeToo on their minds.

It’s a show about “strong women,” insisted book author and series EP Stephanie Danler.

TV critics weren’t necessarily buying it, some seeming to think it played more like a Harvey Weinstein dream, and said so, in so many words.

It’s about who Tess will become, turning from an inarticulate young woman into a strong woman who does not apologize, who knows how to say ‘no’ and is self-possessed, Danler insisted.

“Sex is a part of life, as is food,” chimed in actress Ella Purnell, who plays Tess.

The first season takes place across just two weeks as Tess goes through waitress training and getting to know her co workers, Danler said.

We see her doing a lot more than “getting to know” them, snickered a TV critic.

There is a lot of kissing, acknowledged Purnell.

They’re doing a lot more than kissing, one reporter snarked, noting he’s French.

The conversation starting to resemble too closely a Groucho Marx routine, Sweetbitter EP Stu Zicherman stepped in to explain that the series is about “complete sensory awakening.” Danler, meanwhile, described the series, visually, as a “sensory assault.”

One critic wondered whether the series was out of step with our #MeToo age. Danler did not think that takes any of the fun out of the series, adding, “I don’t think sexual harassment in the workplace is fun.” The current conversation about workplace sexual harassment has not changed “the way we are telling our story,” she said, when asked.

Zicherman said he did not want everything that’s going on in our culture to “squash what’s beautiful about romance,” pulling out that statistic about 50% of relationships beginning in the workplace.

Ella Purnell to Star in Starz’s ‘Sweetbitter’ Adaptation

Oct 7, 2017       Category: News ,Sweetbitter       Comments: 0

Starz has found the star of its upcoming drama series Sweetbitter.

Ella Purnell will play the lead role in the television adaptation of Stephanie Danler’s national best-selling novel. In addition, Emmy winning writer-director Richard Shepard has joined the six-episode series from Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment as an executive producer. Shepard, who directed a dozen episodes of Girls, will helm the series premiere.

The hot project landed at Starz in July after a multiple-network bidding war. Sweetbitter, described as Kitchen Confidential meets Bridget Jones, is a young woman’s coming-of-age story that takes place in the world of exclusive restaurants. It centers on 22-year-old Tess (Purnell), who shortly after arriving in New York City lands a job at a celebrated restaurant downtown. She’s quickly introduced to the world of drugs, alcohol, love, lust, dive bars and fine dining, and learns to navigate the chaotically alluring yet punishing life she’s stumbled into.

Danler wrote the script for the drama with Stu Zicherman (The Americans, The Affair) attached to develop the script with her. The pair will serve as executive producers alongside Shepard. Donna Bloom will serve as producer, with Laura Rosenthal leading the casting search.

“Ella’s portfolio of work and the array of her characters and performances in her young career are truly remarkable. We are excited for fans of the book and audiences to meet Tess,” said Starz president of programming Carmi Zlotnik. “We are also excited by Richard’s vision to bring the book’s richly written sensory experiences from the page to the screen.”

Purnell is best known for her role in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. The 21 year-old British actress also appeared in Never Let Me Go, Kick-Ass 2 and Maleficent. Shepard directed the pilots for Criminal Minds, Ugly Betty and Rosewood, in addition to his extensive work on Girls. His feature credits include The Matador, starring Pierce Brosnan, and Dom Hemingway, starring Jude Law.

Purnell is repped by WME and Sloane Offer. Shepard is repped by 3 Arts Entertainment, Anonymous Content and Jakcoway Tyerman.
