In the wake of the success of The Invisible Man, Elisabeth Moss has started crafting several new and interesting genre projects, including what sounds like a nifty little piece of anthology television that could see one of the best actresses working today taking on Femme Fatales and a neo-noir Los Angeles.
It’s being reported that Moss is developing an anthology titled Black Match for Hulu, in which she will star. The series is described as a psychosexual neo-noir thriller set in modern-day Los Angeles and comes from an original script written by Ian McCulloch. Mike Barker is attached to direct the pilot, who previously directed Moss in twelve episodes of The Handmaid’s Tale, and has shows like Fargo and Outlander on his resume.
“I am so excited to have formed this company and established this partnership with Lindsey to find material ourselves and have real ownership as producers. We want to develop strong, unique stories for the big and small screen that we feel are inclusive and represent the world that we all see around us,” said Moss in a statement. “We are very proud of the slate that we are building, comprised of projects that run the gamut from broad, commercial fare to darker, more challenging works. Craig Erwich and Hulu have been amazing partners on The Handmaid’s Tale these past 3 seasons and I am thrilled to be starting a creative partnership with Bert Salke and everyone at Fox 21.”
Moss recently launched her own production company called Love & Squalor Pictures, which will focus on creating TV and film content for all platforms. Moss’ Hulu/Fox deal will also include the currently developing Candy, a true-crime series starring Moss as an axe murderer, a series called Imperfect Women, and two films based on novels: Smacked, a memoir about addiction, and Idaho, a story about a love rocked by past trauma.
And why wouldn’t Moss team with Hulu, specifically? The Handmaid’s Tale was the first streaming show to ever win an Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series and it just so happens to call Hulu home.
