Gina Rodriguez is ‘On the Verge’

0

In development right now: Gina Rodriguez in “Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown,” the very first Pedro Almodovar TV series for Apple. The now-legendary queer Spanish filmmaker has scored hit after hit at the arthouse, earned two Academy Awards, and will now branch out into television with this adaptation of his breakout ’80s film, a wild comic farce about actors, terrorists and drugged gazpacho. No word yet on which character Rodriguez (“I Want You Back”) will play, or who else will be attached to co-star, but Almodovar will executive produce, and Noelle Valdivia (“Mozart in the Jungle”) is attached as both screenwriter and showrunner if and when the project moves forward to a full series order. See, that’s what “in development” really means: a lot of crossed fingers. So cross yours and say a prayer to the gods of manic mayhem and maybe we’ll all get lucky.
