Glenn Close to Star in Amazon Zombie Comedy Pilot ‘Sea Oak’

Glenn Close is returning to the small screen.

The Emmy-winning Damages alum has been tapped to star Amazon half-hour comedy pilot Sea Oak. The pilot, picked up in March, is described as a mix of zombie drama and family revenge comedy.

Sea Oak revolves around Aunt Bernie (Close), a meek, unmarried woman with no children in working-class Rust Belt City who dies tragically in a home invasion. Compelled by sheer force of dissatisfaction, she comes back from the dead full of rage and determined to get the life she never had. She proceeds to inflict a range of demands on what’s left of her nuclear family, including a quasi-stripper nephew and two feckless nieces, who live in a low-end subsidized hellhole of a housing complex called Sea Oak.

Written by George Saunders (Lincoln in the Bardo), Jonathan Krauss exec produces through his Affiliated Pictures banner. Lael Smith and Keir McFarlane co-executive produce.
