Another short comedy heads our way called DOLL & EM. HBOWatch gave followers a heads up about this series back in September. The official HBO Press Release states:

A bittersweet, intimate portrait of female friendship, the series follows their relationship through unexpected complications and surprising twists. Following a critically acclaimed premiere at 2013’s London Film Festival, the Hollywood Reporter noted, “The lead actresses have a can’t-be-faked electric chemistry together.”

 

 Emily Mortimer’s feature film credits include “Hugo,” “Lovely & Amazing,” “Lars and the Real Girl,” “Dear Frankie,” “Young Adam,” “Shutter Island” and “Bright Young Things.” Dolly Wells’ credits include the feature films “Morvern Callar,” “Bridget Jones’s Diary” and “Franklyn.” DOLL & EM is produced by King Bee Productions, Emily Mortimer and Alessandro Nivola’s production company; executive produced by BAFTA winner Andrew Eaton and Lucy Lumsden, BSKYB’s head of comedy; produced by Alessandro Nivola; co-producers, Stacia Peters and Kevin Comer; directed by Azazel Jacobs; written by Emily Mortimer, Dolly Wells and Azazel Jacobs.

Oh very cool, I really like the idea of “semi-improvised,” and hoping this one will turn out to be a fun watch.
