Chris O’Dowd and Rosamund Pike in ‘State Of The Union’

Endeavor Content will launch international sales at MIPCOM on State Of The Union, a short-form comedy series written by Nick Hornby and produced by See-Saw Films.

The series consists of ten episodes, each ten minutes long. It is directed by Stephen Frears (Philomena) and stars Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) and Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids).

It will air on SundanceTV, and Sundance Now in the first quarter of 2019.

State Of The Union follows Louise and Tom (Pike and O’Dowd), who meet in a pub immediately before their weekly marital session. The series will piece together what united them as a couple and what is starting to pull them apart.

Amy Jackson produces for See-Saw, with executive producers Jamie Laurenson, Hakan Kousetta, Iain Canning, Emile Sherman, Hornby and Frears.

Kristin Jones, executive vice president of international programming for AMC and SundanceTV, is the executive for SundanceTV.
