Hulu Orders Abigail Spencer Thriller ‘Reprisal,’ Elle Fanning-Led Catherine the Great Drama to Series

The Wrap Monday, 11 February 2019 ()
Hulu Orders Abigail Spencer Thriller ‘Reprisal,’ Elle Fanning-Led Catherine the Great Drama to SeriesHulu has placed series orders for the Abigail Spencer-led thriller “Reprisal,” and “The Great,” a “genre bending” project starring Elle Fanning as Catherine the Great, the streamer announced during the Television Critics Association press tour Monday.

Both series — previously pilots in the works at the streamer — will go into production later this year, with “Reprisal” premiering in 2019 and “The Great” launching in 2020.

From “The Handmaid’s Tale” executive producer Warren Littlefield, “Reprisal” is described as “a hyper-kinetic revenge tale following a relentless femme fatale (Abigail Spencer) who, after being left for dead, leads a vengeful campaign against a bombastic gang of gear heads.”

The drama stars Spencer, Rodrigo Santoro, Mena Massoud, Madison Davenport, Rhys Wakefield, David Dastmalchian, W. Earl Brown and Gilbert Owuor.

“Reprisal” is created, written and executive produced by Josh Corbin. Littlefield, Barry Jossen and Jonathan van Tulleken, who also directed the pilot, serve as executive producers. Ann Johnson and Graham Littlefield serve as co-executive producers. The series is produced by A+E Studios in association with The Littlefield Company.

Per Hulu, “‘The Great’ is a genre bending, anti-historical ride through 18th Century Russia following the wildly comic rise of Catherine the Nothing to Catherine the Great.”

The series stars Fanning as Catherine, along with Nicholas Hoult, Phoebe Fox, Adam Godley, Gwilym Lee, Charity Wakefield, Douglas Hodge and Sacha Dhawan.

“The Great” is created, written and executive produced by Tony McNamara (“The Favourite”) and executive produced by Fanning, Marian Macgowan, Thruline’s Josh Kesselman and Ron West, Echo Lake’s Brittany Kahan Ward, Doug Mankoff and Andrew Spaulding, and Matt Shakman, who also directed the pilot. The project hails from MRC.

“Reprisal” and “The Great” will join Hulu’s upcoming slate of projects, including the “Veronica Mars” revival, “Four Weddings and a Funeral” from Mindy Kaling, “Wu-Tang: An American Saga” from Brian Grazer and The RZA; and “Little Fires Everywhere” from Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington.
