    Annette Bening To Topline Jay Roach Comedy Series Project Eyed By HBO
    By NELLIE ANDREEVA

    EXCLUSIVE: A potential single-camera comedy series for HBO is building a formidable team. Jay Roach is set to direct the project, titled The Third Coast, which has Annette Bening attached to star. I hear Bening and the producers are doing an informal reading to get a feel for the show before they take it formally to HBO, the network for which it is earmarked. Written by Paul Rudnick, Third Coast revolves around a larger-than-life casting director (Bening) in New Mexico. Rudnick, Roach and John Lyons executive produce. The Third Coast brings Oscar-nominated Bening back to HBO where she toplined the 2005 movie Mrs. Harris, earning an Emmy nomination. For Roach, Third Coast falls under a two-year deal with HBO he inked last year on the heels of back-to-back best movie/miniseries and directing Emmys he landed for the network’s Recount and Game Change.

    This is crazy! Diane Lane (even though it’s a miniseries), PSH and now Annette Bening…. Who’s next?
     
    Seeing Bening here reminds me of HBO’s plan to adapt The Kids Are All Right into TV series, does this project still go on?

    ^ Honestly, I’m still scratching my head why she hasn’t done a TV show yet? She should have been already on her fifth season…

    LOL Maybe she’s envious that Glenn Close has 3 Emmys and she has only 2.

    But seriously, the one who needs to do TV series, particularly comedy series, ASAP is Renee Zellweger. This could revive her career.

    This could be a very good thing for Annette, but it still feels like Hollywood (Film) is losing out on one of the best American actresses we have.

    Hollywood is not missing anything. Annette will still be doing films and tv is respected these days. Having your own show these days is actually one of the bets things that can happen to any actor, even veterans nominated for Oscars with successful careers. We are not in the 90’s anymore.

    LOL. Well played.

    I agree with Renaton. It’s not like Annette Bening is signing her soul away. Most HBO seasons are only about 10 episodes. That leaves at least more than half of the year to do whatever film projects she wants.

    More Bening/Swank wars Emmys style could be amaze. I’m glad to see Bening make this leap to television and wish all the best for this new series of hers.

    We are in a television gold age. I mean, I believe the 2012 TV series were better than the 2012 films.

    I’d add Sissy Spacek to the list of older women who could benefit from a TV series (maybe she can play the matriarch of a big family a la Sally Fields or Bonnie Bedelia)

    Sissy Spacek catches me as the kind of actress who could have a total career revitalization thanks to a big cable drama series.

    I’d like to see her go totally against type. We’ve seen her play the mommy before. Maybe an unethical career woman like Glenn Close on Damages?
