YouTube gives series order to Kirsten Dunst series


YouTube has given a 10-episode series order to Kirsten Dunst’s dark comedy series!

A deal has been made by YouTube for ten episodes for a dark comedy series starring Kirsten Dunst! The series, On Becoming A God in Central Florida, will star and give Dunst a role as an executive producer under George Clooney and Grant Heslov’s production company, Smokehouse Pictures along with Sony’s TriStar Television.

The series will have hour-long episodes and is set in the1990s with a dark comedy vibe. On Becoming A God in Central Florida was originally being developed at AMC and was near and dear to the late Suzanne Patmore Gibbs–TriStar TV topper.

Robert Funke and Matt Lutsky are the writers behind Becoming A God which will take place in Orlando. The story follows Dunst’s character, Krystal Gill, a water park employee who works her way up in a pyramid scheme that eventually lost her family billions of dollars.

"“In Krystal Gill, Funke and Lutsky have created a truly delicious, sometimes diabolical female character — a dirt poor, very fierce young woman who is relentless in her pursuit of the American dream inside of an Amway-like company.” -Patmore Gibbs"

Alongside Dunst, Funky, Lutsky, and Lanthimos will executive produce the series along with Esta Spalding, who is also a showrunner. Furthermore, Charlie McDowell will be directing.

SonyTV gained a lot of success with their first YouTube production in Cobra Kai, which has just recently been renewed for a second season.
