Laura Linney Will Star on New Showtime Series
Laura Linney got a new project coming up!
The Oscar nominee actress will star as a cancer-stricken woman in a new television series on Showtime that will be titled The C Word. On Thursday, the network for the series released a statement saying that not only Linney will star on the comedy show, she will also acted as the executive producer.
In the series, 45-year-old Linney plays a suburban mom whose life changes when she learns she has cancer. She will later confront her illness and finds the light side in a dark situation. The Savages actress said in a statement about her upcoming project, “How one lives fully while being tested by the unpredictability of life, and what one learns in the process, is always filled with endless possibility for an actor.”
When asked about her comment on the future show, Linney also added, “I am very excited to tackle such potentially rich, funny and complicated material.” Although the show’s pilot episode will be shot this fall, no air date has been set yet.
Before doing this project, Linney had appeared in several featured films; such as Kinsey, in which she was nominated for an Oscar, and 2000 film You Can Count on Me.
We’re excited to see you in the new show, Laura!
