Amy Brenneman and Sabrina Peck’s ‘Imperfect Offerings’




In this follow up to “Mouth Wide Open,” Amy Brenneman and Sabrina Peck will explore the agony, ecstasy, and crazy heart-opening of being at the fulcrum—the middle—of one’s one life.  The material will be drawn from Amy’s writing — a viral blog that is now being adapted into a book.  Her writing does not hold back.  She tells honest stories of her elderly parents, her pubescent, special needs daughter, her political activism, and her own aging body.  The stories are poignant, insightful, and balls-out funny, as she weaves her particular point of view of what it is to be fully alive.

At the Yard this story will be told using journal entries, written scenes, and live music.  Although Amy will be the only live performer on stage, the evening will be populated with many recorded voices and filmed images.  Part Louis CK, part Spaulding Gray, and part Mark Morris, the evening will be utterly unique, honest, and accessible.

‘The Leftovers’ Is Moving to Australia in Season 3 (Exclusive)



‘The Leftovers’ is moving locations again — and this time, it’s headed out of America.

Sources say the third and final season of the HBO drama will take place in Australia, both on and off screen, due to an upcoming storyline in the show. Production will pick up where it left off last season in Austin, Texas, before going down under.

The series from Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta, which has established itself as a critical hit, started out in a small New York suburb (the fictional Mapleton, shot in Westchester County) before relocating in season two to a “miracle” town in Texas (Jarden, shot in Austin), also for creative reasons.

Based on the novel of the same name by Perrotta, the weighty drama explores what happens in a world where two percent of the population has mysteriously disappeared. The series hails from Warner Bros. Television, where Lindelof has an overall deal through 2018.

A premiere date for the third season has yet to be announced.
