Lin Shaye To Lead Action Series “Ellen”
Veteran actress Lin Shaye is about to go all John Wick on us.
The “Insidious” star will both star in and executive produce the six-episode action-thriller TV series “Ellen” for New Regency (“The Beast Must Die”) and QCode (“The Edge of Sleep”).
The story will follow a nefarious land developer who gets more than he bargained for when he tries to intimidate an 80-year-old widow (Shaye) into abandoning her Montana ranch.
Jalmari Helander (“Big Game”) came up with the idea for the series and additional casting is underway. The production partners will also develop and produce a podcast to accompany the show.
The series will be directed by filmmaker duo Clif Prowse and Derek Lee (“Afflicted”) who also executive produce alongside Ben Pugh, Charlie Morrison, Petri Jokiranta, Jalmari Helander and Josh Horsfield.
