“The project is from writer and executive producers Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner (Girls). The description: “Walt’s 45th birthday was supposed to be a delightful weekend back to nature, at least according to his obsessively organized and aggressively controlling wife Kathryn (Garner). But when the camping trip gathers Kathryn’s meek sister, holier than thou ex-best friend and a free-spirited Tagalong in one place, it becomes a weekend of tested marriages and woman on woman crime that won’t soon be forgotten. Plus, bears.”
Konner and Dunham called the role “messy, tough and provocative and really really fun. We love Jennifer’s restraint and comedic timing, and we can’t wait for the warmth and intelligence she’ll bring to our central character, Kathryn. It’s truly a dream to have her first on our call sheet. Now we just have to write her some stunts.” Her character is described as “a controlling LA mom who is far less cheerful than her Lululemons imply. Kathryn controls the proceedings with an iron grip until she’s faced with a woman who undoes all her best-laid plans.”
The eight-episode Camping is based on a British series with the same name by Julia Davis.”

Nice vehicle for Garner, who has been appearing in bad movie after bad movie in recent years. Good for her. The title of the show is going to have to get some getting used to.February 9, 2018 at 10:00 am #1202490808
And her SAG-nominated role in Dallas Buyers Club!
The first thing that I thought when I saw this thread was that the show needs a new title.February 9, 2018 at 10:15 am #1202490821
I really hope this turns into an Emmy vehicle for Garner, she should already have at least one for Alias, and an Oscar nomination for Juno.February 9, 2018 at 4:01 pm #1202490975

Agreed. She was incredible in Alias and totally changed my perception of her. She’s super talented. And in Juno she was amazing as well.February 9, 2018 at 4:34 pm #1202490987
