While he might not be as much a part of the cultural conversation now as he was circa his breakout films “In The Company Of Men” and “Your Friends & Neighbours,” Neil LaBute is still pushing buttons. His latest effort to shock viewers is his DirecTV series “Billy & Billie,” and a few promos have arrived.
Adam Brody and Lisa Joyce star in the series following two step-siblings who fall in love. As you might expect, this news doesn’t get the best reception, and the whole thing is told in a jaunty sitcom vibe. It’s not clear just how deep the show will get into certain issues, but the teasers clarify that the lead characters are step-siblings. After that, you can check out a featurette detailing the creation of the show.
“Billy & Billie” arrives on March 3rd. Watch below.
