Casting News - February 21, 2023

Amazon's The Sticky.

  • Margo Martindale and Chris Diamantopoulos have been cast in the lead roles on upcoming comedy created by Brian Donovan and Ed Herro. Martindale is a three-time Emmy Award winner for her performances in FX's Justified and FX's The Americans. Diamantopoulos previously starred for two seasons in HBO's Silicon Valley and in the Netflix limited series True Story. Both actors will next appear in recurring roles on Peacock's upcoming drama Mrs. Davis.
  • The comedy revolves around Ruth Clarke (Martindale), a tough, supremely competent middle-aged Canadian maple syrup farmer who's had it with being hemmed in by the polite, bureaucratic conventions native to her country's identity. Especially now that that very bureaucracy is threatening to take away everything she loves: Her farm, her comatose husband, and her right to freedom. With the help of Remy Bouchard, a local blockhead, and Mike Byrne (Diamantopoulos), a low-level mobster, Ruth changes her fate - and transforms the future of her community with the theft of millions of dollars' worth of maple syrup.
