DESCRIPTION:
(from Showtime's press release, September 2019) SHOWTIME has picked up a second season of the critically acclaimed comedy ON BECOMING A GOD IN CENTRAL FLORIDA. Starring Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Kirsten Dunst (Fargo), the series is a darkly comedic story about the cult of free enterprise and one woman's relentless pursuit of the American Dream. In addition to Dunst, the first season stars Théodore Pellerin (Genesis), Mel Rodriguez (The Last Man on Earth), Beth Ditto (Nocturnal Animals) and Ted Levine (The Silence of the Lambs). Created and executive produced by Robert Funke and Matt Lutsky and produced by Sony's TriStar Television, the series is also executive produced by Smokehouse Pictures' George Clooney (Catch-22) and Grant Heslov (Catch-22), showrunner Esta Spalding (MASTERS OF SEX), Dunst and Charlie McDowell (The One I Love). Season one is currently airing on Sundays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on SHOWTIME. The announcement was made today by Gary Levine and Jana Winograde, Presidents of Entertainment, Showtime Networks Inc. Set in a small Orlando-adjacent town in 1992, ON BECOMING A GOD IN CENTRAL FLORIDA follows Krystal Stubbs (Dunst), a minimum-wage water park employee who lies, schemes and cons her way up the ranks of Founders American Merchandise (FAM) - the cultish, flag-waving, multibillion-dollar pyramid scheme that drove her to ruin in the first place, run by the powerful Obie Garbeau II (Levine). Determined to make a better life for herself, Krystal dives deep into FAM and develops a tangled relationship with FAM's most loyal and fanatical follower Cody (Pellerin), until her business begins to affect those closest to her, including Ernie (Rodriguez), her affable water park boss, and his FAM-skeptic wife Bets (Ditto).
