Suburgatory Boss on the “Tough” Search for Tessa’s Mom

The pressure is on for Suburgatory this coming season. On-screen, the family comedy is preparing to introduce the long-gone mom of Tessa (Jane Levy) as well as finally put will-they-or-won’t-they couple George (Jeremy Sisto) and Dallas (Cheryl Hines) together. Off-screen, the family comedy is in the hot seat (in a good way) after a last-minute bump on the fall schedule from 8:30/7:30c to the coveted post-Modern Family spot of 9:30/8:30c.

“I’m still trying to figure out what I should send [ABC Entertainment President] Paul Lee as a thank you gift,” creator and executive producer Emily Kapnek says. “It’s not just a huge opportunity, but a good fit. We were a little bit edgy at times for 8:30.”

When Suburgatory returns for its second season on Wednesday, Oct. 17, months will have passed since George’s girlfriend, Eden (Alicia Silverstone), went into labor with Noah’s baby and Tessa came face-to-face with her maternal grandmother. Since then, George has been dumped and Tessa has been spending quality time with her grandma in the Big Apple — a new development that will have big repercussions.

Evil Dead Reboot Wraps! The Waiting Begins.

So the first part of the trek to a new Evil Dead film is officially over. The film has wrapped, post-production is set to begin, and now all we have to do is wait patiently for the film Sam Raimi calls “intense, scary, and gut-wrenching.”

Ghost House Pictures is producing the much anticipated remake of Sam Raimi’s 1981 cult-hit horror film The Evil Dead, the film that effectively launched the careers of Sam Raimi (Spider-Man franchise, Darkman, Drag Me to Hell), Rob Tapert (30 Days of Night), and Bruce Campbell, who played the Ash character and was co-producer of the original. They are now back to produce an Evil Dead for today’s audience that’s high on the horror, gore, plot twists, and more from a screenplay written by Fede Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues with Diablo Cody. Executive producers are J.R. Young, Nathan Kahane, Joseph Drake, and Peter Schlessel.

A core cast of young, fresh talent includes Jane Levy (“Suburgatory”) as Mia; Shiloh Fernandez (Deadgirl, Red Riding Hood) as David; Lou Taylor Pucci (Carriers) as Eric; Jessica Lucas (Cloverfield) as Olivia; and Elizabeth Blackmore (Legend of the Seeker) as Natalie.

Five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin where they discover a Book of the Dead and unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival.

EMMYS: ‘Suburgatory’s Jane Levy

Jane Levy had only one credit to her name – Showtime’s Shameless – before landing the lead role in ABC’s Suburgatory. But watching the young actress hold her own as Tessa Altman against established actors like Jeremy Sisto, Ana Gasteyer and Cheryl Hines, it’s clear her talent is greater than her years. Now, the ingénue is on the radar of Emmy voters too.

AWARDSLINE: What has it been like carrying a show?
LEVY: I don’t really feel like I am [but] I’m constantly told that. At first, it was heavily narrated, and most of the show was about either Tessa or George’s storyline. But halfway through the season, [creator] Emily [Kapnek] realized that we have such a strong ensemble cast and she had to use them. I feel extremely safe, like I don’t even need to do anything because I’m surrounded by incredible actors and hilarious people. I don’t feel the need to be funny because of them.

AWARDSLINE: There are a lot of comedy veterans in the cast. What have you learned from them?
LEVY: Honestly, it’s hard to learn about comedy from comedians. Comedy is not something that you necessarily learn or can imitate. You’re funny or you’re not, and you hope what you’re doing is funny. But mostly what I’ve learned from them is not necessarily on camera, but how they act on set. They’re all extremely positive, supportive, funny professionals. When I’m really tired, and I’m feeling sorry for myself, all of them are always there telling me to suck it up. [Laughs]
