TNT Picks Up Drama Pilots "Constance" and "Beast Mode" (wt)

Constance from Sonar Entertainment to star Elisabeth Shue, written by KC Perry, directed by Jesse Peretz and executive produced by Robert Downey Jr., Susan Downey, Amanda Burrell, Bill Dubuque, Tom Lesinski, Jenna Santoianni, Peretz, Shue and Perry

Beast Mode is written and executive produced by David Schneiderman with executive producers Stefanie Huie and MACRO's Charles D. King, Kim Roth and Poppy Hanks

Turner's TNT has ordered the scripted dramas Constance and Beast Mode (working title) to pilot. KC Perry (The Originals) wrote Constance, which stars Academy Award nominee Elisabeth Shue (Leaving Las Vegas), with Emmy(R) nominee Jesse Peretz (Glow, Girls) attached to direct. Constance is produced by Team Downey, in association with Sonar Entertainment and Studio T, with Robert Downey Jr., Susan Downey (Sherlock Holmes), Amanda Burrell, Bill Dubuque (Ozark), Tom Lesinski (Mr. Mercedes), Jenna Santoianni (Mr. Mercedes), Peretz, Shue and Perry serving as executive producers. Beast Mode is written and executive produced by David Schneiderman and produced by Ann Wolfe and MACRO in association with Studio T, with executive producers Stefanie Huie (Triangle) and MACRO's Charles D. King (Mudbound), Kim Roth (Inside Man) and Poppy Hanks (Fences).

Constance is a fun, darkly humorous, veneer-stripping story about one woman's refusal to fade into obsolescence. It follows former beauty queen turned small town bureaucrat, Constance Young, whose life is thrown into turmoil after her husband's mysterious death. Realizing she and her family are on the verge of financial ruin, Constance turns to cooking the books at City Hall, while simultaneously trying to reinvent herself through the hyper-competitive world of direct-sales cosmetics.

In a different, but equally compelling tale of a woman on the edge, Beast Mode, inspired by the life of legendary boxing trainer Ann Wolfe, tells the story of a feisty, brilliant-yet-damaged woman with a "kill or be killed" mentality. While these qualities make her an excellent trainer, they tend to cause problems in the rest of her life.

"Constance and Beast Mode exist in two radically different worlds, one of cosmetics and crime, and the other of elite boxing, but both pilots are about complicated, empowered women who are incredible forces of nature," said Sarah Aubrey, executive vice president of original programming for TNT. "Their passion and ambition, mixed with a healthy dose of craziness, make them unforgettable characters that our viewers will love."
