DESCRIPTION:
(from SundanceTV's press release, December 2017) Sundance Now, AMC Networks' premium video streaming service announced today that its new original relationship dramedy, "This Close" will premiere on Valentine's Day - Wednesday, February 14. The news comes on the heels of the series' acceptance into the 2018 Sundance Film Festival as part of the Fest's new Indie Episodic showcase. The upcoming scripted series, the streaming service's first ever straight-to-series order, is based on a series of shorts that was featured at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival's Short Form Episodic Showcase. "This Close," created, written, and starring Shoshannah Stern and Josh Feldman, both deaf actors, explores the relationship between best friends Kate (Stern), who is newly engaged, and Michael (Feldman), who is attempting to move on from his ex-fiancé. Sundance Now also announced the series is directed by award-winning filmmaker Andrew Ahn (Spa Night) who also serves as an executive producer. Comprised of six, 30-minute episodes, "This Close" touches on universal and relatable themes of love and friendship and, in addition to Stern and Feldman, features a talented ensemble cast of recurring guest stars including Zach Gilford who plays Danny, Kate's (Stern) fiancé; Cheryl Hines as Stella, a PR maven and Kate's boss; Colt Prattes as Ryan, Michael's (Feldman) ex; and Marlee Matlin as Michael's mother, Annie, a recovering alcoholic trying to reconnect with her son.
