Paul Feig to direct UK series "Ronna & Beverly"
Paul Feig, director of "Bridesmaids" and co-creator of the classic TV series "Freaks & Geeks", will direct "Ronna & Beverly", a six-part mock talk show featuring two fifty-something Jewish American mothers who ask blunt questions of real guests and offer advice those guests probably donít need. The series, which will be for the UK satellite channel Sky Atlantic HD, features writer/performers Jessica Chaffin and Jamie Denbo as the title characters. The duo got the series after a series of critically acclaimed stage shows in the UK and the US. Feigís US-based Classy Productions is producing with Hat Trick Productions in the UK. The pilot episode will feature "Mad Men" star Jon Hamm and "Episodes" star Stephen Mangan as the first guests.
