Ava DuVernay Developing Lauren Ridloff, Joshua Jackson Romantic Drama at Starz

I will watch anything that Joshua Jackson is in! ~ V


The network has given the untitled project a three-season script-to-series commitment.

Joshua Jackson and Eternals‘ Lauren Ridloff will star in a romantic drama series from Ava DuVernay in development at Starz.

The network has given the untitled project a three-season script-to-series commitment, meaning that if greenlit, all 18 half-hour episodes (six per season) would air.

Ridloff and Jackson, who previously starred together on Broadway in the Children of a Lesser God revival (for which Ridloff received a Tony nomination), will play polar opposites — one ambitious, one restless; one ready to commit, one commitment-phobic; one Black, one white; one deaf, one hearing — who are romantically drawn to one another in spite of all social assumptions and personal expectations.

Queen Sugar alumna Kat Candler will write the first episode, showrun and executive produce alongside DuVernay, Ridloff, Jackson and Array Filmworks president Paul Garnes.

“On behalf of my producing partner Paul Garnes and everyone at Array Filmworks, I’m thrilled to develop this passion project with Lauren, Josh and Kat,” DuVernay said in a statement. “Starz and Warner Bros. Television have made a bold production commitment to immediately explore three seasons, and we’re revved up and ready to begin what I hope will be a beautiful journey for all involved.”
