Big Mouth & Esther Povitsky
Dollface Originals Projects

The fifth season of Netflix’s Emmy-winning animated show Big Mouth came out yesterday, November 5, bringing into light a couple of casting changes hitherto unknown to the fans. We sadly report that Kat did not come back to voice Leah Birch, passing on the role to actress and comedian Chloe Fineman, who is perhaps mostly known for her appearances on Saturday Night Live. No reasons for this change have yet been revealed by the showrunners or Kat Dennings herself.

While we await further news and publicity stills from Dollface, we would like to share a recent interview co-star Esther Povitsky conceded to Yahoo Entertainment where she addressed her comedy and the inspiration behind it.

She explains that she sees her skillsets cross-pollinating right now, and that while her work on Dollface (scripted) is vastly different from honing a standup set, the two keep each other sharp in a way. “They’re two completely different jobs, but getting on stage and testing out material helps me keep my comedy beats and my timing in tune,” she says. “Then, just being on the show has given me new life experience to draw from.”

For anyone that has yet to jump into Dollface, now is the perfect time to catch up while filming for the second season is underway. Povitsky appears alongside Kat Dennings, a sterling Brenda Song, and Shay Mitchell, who portray a friend group in a time of reconciliation shot through a chaotic, absurdist lens. Executive produced by Margot Robbie, Dollface feels like a necessary exploration of female friendship, a tender but honest peek into the complicated highs and lows of existing in your twenties.

According to Povitsky, the friendships seen on screen on Dollface aren’t a big reach. “I feel like they cast us as a real-life friend group,” she says. “This season, in particular, we were just all so comfortable with each other.”

Dollface Press Articles Projects

Season two of Dollface has officially wrapped filming!

Brenda Song revealed the news in an Instagram post on Friday (October 15).

The new mom stars alongside Kat DenningsShay Mitchell and Esther Povitsky in the Hulu series, which was delayed due to the pandemic.

“Aaaand that’s a wrap on season 2 of @dollfaceonhulu !!! Words cannot express how grateful I am to all of these ( and so many more who aren’t pictured) incredible humans, who worked so hard to make this season happen. It has been an insane journey but we did it!!!” she wrote in her post.

“I love you all soooo much!! @michnader @katdenningsss @esthermonster @shaymitchell I truly don’t know what I would have done without you guys. Thank you for being the most supportive, hilarious, talented, smart, kind and bad ass friends anyone could ask for. I love you guys an embarrassing amount. You all are stuck with me for forever…. and then some,” she added.

Kat also shared a wrap post, the day before.

“That’s a wrap on DOLLFACE SEASON 2! Without @brendasong, @esthermonster, @shaymitchell and our incredible showrunner @michnader, I would likely be dead by now. Probably from scurvy? I hope you guys love season 2 as much as I suspect you might, and if you don’t, it’s only like 75% my fault,” she wrote.

Project updates round-up
Dollface Originals Projects WandaVision

The Hollywood Critics Association TV Awards, which took place last Sunday, scored WandaVision two awards: the show won in the “Best Limited Series, Anthology Series, or Live Action TV Movie” category and, while Kat did not win the “Best Supporting Actress for a Limited Series, Anthology Series or Live Action TV Movie” award for which she was nominated, we are pleased to see it in the very good hands of co-star Kathryn Hahn.

Dollface has seemingly wrapped filming, as Kat posted a selfie to her Instagram captioned “she’s retired”. Last week, KABCRadio’s Gurvey’s Law show chatted with actress Fran Drescher, thus teasing her participation in the second season of Hulu’s show. Kat had previously expressed her wish of bringing Drescher to the show for the role of Jules’s mother. Unfortunately, the episode is not available online.

Finally, as for the upcoming The Sandman, Audible has released the official trailer for the second act, featuring the voice talent of James McAvoy as Morpheus, to premiere next month. Pre-order is available.

‘Dollface’: Michelle Nader Set As Showrunner Of Season 2 Of Hulu’s Kat Dennings Comedy
Dollface Press Articles Projects

EXCLUSIVE: Michelle Nader has boarded Dollface, the Hulu comedy starring Kat Dennings, as showrunner for its second season.

Nader, who was showrunner and exec producer of Dennings’ CBS comedy 2 Broke Girls, replaces Ira Ungerleider, who was showrunner for season one.

The half-hour show is set to start production this summer after a long, Covid-impacted delay on filming with new episodes set to air in 2022.

The streamer said that Dollface was one of its “best performing new binge series for subscriber engagement” after it launched in November 2019 and was renewed in January 2020.

Dollface follows Jules, played Kat Dennings, a young vibrant woman who is dealing with the aftermath of being dumped by her boyfriend. With a broken heart, Jules battles her own imagination in order to literally and metaphorically re-enter the world of women, with friendships she left behind and the new battle of dating post breakup.

Brenda Song, Shay Mitchell and Esther Povitsky also star.

The series was created by Jordan Weiss, who serves as an executive producer alongside Nader, Margot Robbie, Brett Hedblom and Tom Ackerley for LuckyChap Entertainment, Bryan Unkeless and Scott Morgan for Screen Arcade, Kat Dennings and Nicole King. Dollface is produced by ABC Signature Studios, part of Disney Television Studios.

Nader previously spent a decade under an overall deal at Warner Bros. Television, where in addition to showrunning 2 Broke Girls, she developed female-driven comedy pilots such as I Mom So Hard and an Iliza Schleshinger project at CBS, as well as a Quinta Brunson collaboration at HBO Max.

Previously, she created the U.S. adaptation of Kath & Kim starring Molly Shannon and Selma Blair for NBC while under a deal at Universal, and other past credits also include King of Queens, Spin City, and Dharma and Greg. She most recently worked on the CBS series B-Positive, produced by Chuck Lorre, and she currently has a pilot in development at Fox.

“I only run shows that Kat Dennings stars in – I think that’s a smart plan. She is incredible.” said Nader. “And Jordan has an amazing and distinct voice. She created a really unique world with such a fresh perspective, and I feel lucky to get to write for all these women. And an imaginary Cat Lady.”

“I feel incredibly lucky to have Michelle as a mentor and a partner this season,” said Weiss. “The way she writes women is thoughtful, hilarious, and real, and the way she runs a show follows suit. I’m so excited to work with her, Kat, Margot, and the rest of our Hulu/ABC team to bring another season of this show to life.”

“We are so lucky to have Michelle Nader running this show. I’ve seen her mastery and commitment firsthand and I can’t wait to be on a set with her again” said Kat Dennings. “She is the ideal person to take Dollface to new heights.”

Nader is represented by ICM Partners and Ken Richman at Hansen, Jacobson, Teller, Hoberman. Weiss is represented by UTA, Mosaic and attorney Patti Felker. Dennings is represented by UTA, Linden Entertainment, and attorney Harris Hartman.

Never in my life have I approached a brand ASKING to partner with them out of sheer adoration. As a passionate (yet not remotely professional) gardener, I’ve become obsessed with only allowing REAL FRUIT (not “natural flavor” – actual fruit) into my consumables. Once I realized that everything I was drinking was “flavored”, I went on the hunt. I discovered @drinkspindrift which is the FIRST sparkling water made with 100% ONLY REAL SQUEEZED FRUIT and I became an absolute psycho, slowly converting my friends and family to the Drifter lifestyle. I may be part Spindrift at this point, as it is actually the only water I drink. Anyway. More to come. #realfruittastesbetter#spindriftpartner
