Development News - Glenn Close Returns to TV for Amazon Comedy Pilot 'Sea Oak'

Development News - June 16, 2017

Amazon's Sea Oak.

  • Emmy and Tony winner Glenn Close (Damages, Sunset Boulevard) will star in the comedy pilot written by George Saunders. She will play Aunt Bernie, a meek, unmarried woman with no children in working-class Rust Belt City who dies tragically in a home invasion. Compelled by sheer force of dissatisfaction, she comes back from the dead full of rage and determined to get the life she never had. She proceeds to inflict a range of demands on what's left of her nuclear family, including a quasi-stripper nephew and two feckless nieces, who live in a low-end subsidized hellhole of a housing complex called Sea Oak.
