On a much lighter note, it''s Showtime once more for Homeland vet Mandy Patinkin.
Seasoned, a rumored half-hour comedy series inspired by couples'' unorthodox real-life marriage of 43 years, has been announced on Thursday. Showtime has issued a pilot order for the project.
Seasoned, conceived and co-written by pair son Gideon Grody and writer-director Ewen Wright, follows the delightfully tumultuous relationship and life of a successful, granny, deeply committed, slightly insane married couple played by Patinkin and Grody. The source of their unending happiness is the same as their unending woe: that they have all maintained this time.
With their fantastic, funny and inspired social media posts, Gary Levine and Jana Winograde, presidents of Showtime Networks, describe the pandemic as a tragedy. Together they fearlessly show us the joy and the pain of marriage,aging, and living with the immunizations of everyday life. We are honored to welcome them back to Showtime.
Patinkin recently appeared in a season-long comedy on The Good Fight. Her include one-woman playA Moms Life, Top Girls, The Marriage Of Bette and Boo, A Model Apartment, and 20th Century Blues.
