Bravo Buys Ry Russo-Young Drama, 'The Joneses' Pilot Not Going Forward
EXCLUSIVE: Bravo has put in development a supernatural drama project from writer-director Ry Russo-Young , winner of a 2012 Sundance Special Jury Prize for her film Nobody Walks , and playwright Dorothy Fortenberry.
Ry Russo-Young's Nobody Walks has a lot going for it: it has a stellar cast of well-regarded TV actors, it has a screenplay co-written by the talented Lena Dunham and it has a strong sense of atmosphere.
Slow-paced Indie about L.A. filmmakers looks, sounds great
LOTS OF PEOPLE walk but, apparently, not in L.A. That's the partial meaning behind indie filmmaker Russo-Young and her cerebral, slow-moving drama about the complexities of relationships, sexuality and boundaries, based on a screenplay she co-wrote with Lena Dunham .
'Nobody Walks' 2012 | movie review
There are some topics that are rarely introduced in film. There are a number of reasons why this is a fact, maybe filmmakers don't think it is a very interesting topic or maybe it is taboo.
Cool stuff on DVD today: a Beautya and more
