An actress known for her work on the big screen, who has received two Oscar nominations for her screenwriting, is making the move to television. Variety reports that Julie Delpy revealed she is developing the drama series “On the Verge” for a major U.S. streaming service.
Delpy, born in Paris, was nominated for Academy Awards for writing for the Richard Linklater movies “Before Sunset” (2004) and “Before Midnight” (2013). She is also known for her on-screen appearances in films including “An American Werewolf in Paris” (1997) and “Three Colors: White” (1994).
Delpy talked about “On the Verge,” her first TV drama effort, while appearing in New York to present her latest film, “Lolo.”
“Set in the U.S., the English-language comedy series will turn on a group of forty-something women tackling singlehood and will depict their relationships with men,” Variety reports.
The report quotes Delpy saying: “We usually picture women in their forties at peace with themselves, but that’s not how they are in real life. I’d like to show them in a way that we haven’t seen them before — show how crude and crazy they can be when they talk about men, sex and relationships.”
