Showtime Sets 'Out of Order' Date
By Brian Ford Sullivan (TFC)

CHICAGO (thefutoncritic.com) -- Showtime will debut its new limited-run series "Out of Order" on Sunday, June 1 at 10:00/9:00c with a special 90-minute premiere. The drama, about the marriage between two Hollywood screenwriters (Eric Stoltz and Felicity Huffman), will then move to Mondays at 10:00/9:00c the following week for its remaining four episodes.

Here's how Showtime describes the project (via press release):

"Ever since he was a boy, Mark (Eric Stoltz) has imagined his life as a movie -- complete with animals that talk and special effects. But these days the movie of his life has become a lot more complicated than the popcorn flicks that he and his wife, Lorna (Felicity Huffman) write for a living. Their latest project -- a script for an A-list director (Peter Bogdanovich) -- is complicated by Lorna's battle with clinical depression. She hasn't written in months and has started to self-medicate, smoking pot and drinking gin with Steven (William H. Macy), a washed-up producer. Mark, who has always remained faithful to Lorna despite a wandering eye and blatant come-ons from a school mom Annie (Justine Bateman), finds himself becoming obsessed with Danni (Kim Dickens). Danni's son plays soccer with Mark and Lorna's nine-year-old son, Walter (Dyllan Christopher)."

Donna Powers and Wayne Powers, married screenwriters themselves, wrote the pilot and are producing the series with Peter McIntosh. Wayne Powers (who also directed the pilot) explains, "[The series] may be about a Hollywood marriage, but it's not just another Hollywood story."
