Gossellaar stars as Brad Wolgast, an FBI agent assigned to escort Amy to Project Noah, "a secret, government-funded, medical research facility in Colorado, where a drug is being tested that turns people into lethal killing machines but also unleashes psychic abilities."

Filming begins this month in Atlanta. (Deadline.com)

Taking place over a single day, it's described as a rollicking portrait of one woman's fumbling but valiant attempt to navigate the knotty perils and sly grace of modern life." Semple herself is penning the project with Red Om Films' Roberts and Annapurna Television's Megan Ellison and Sue Naegle also executive producing. (Deadline.com)
