Endeavor addresses State of the Union

See-Saw Films made State of the Union for SundanceTV

Endeavor Content, the US company launched after the merger of WME and IMG, has picked up a 10-part shortform comedy from the UK- and Australia-based prodco behind Top of the Lake for distribution.

State of the Union was produced by See-Saw Films for SundanceTV in the US and written by Bafta winner Nick Hornby (Brooklyn, An Education).

Endeavor is launching global sales at Mipcom next week ahead of the show’s launch on SundanceTV, sundancetv.com and streamer Sundance Now in the first quarter of 2019.

The show, which will star Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) and Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids), is made up of 10-minute episodes and follows a couple who meet in a pub immediately before their weekly marital therapy session.

With each successive episode, the show pieces together how their lives were, what drew them together and what has started to pull them apart.

See-Saw was founded by producers Iain Canning and Emile Sherman in 2008, initially focusing on movies including The King’s Speech and Lion.

Its TV output includes Jane Campion’s Top of the Lake, while forthcoming show The Legend of Monkey will be available via Netflix, the ABC in Australia and New Zealand’s TVNZ. See-Saw is also in development on The North Water, to be written and directed by Andrew Haigh (45 Years) and adapted from the novel by Ian McGuire.
