Producer Chad Hodge (“Wayward Pines”) is having quite a successful fall: His new stage take on the 1942 movie musical classic “Holiday Inn” just hit Broadway, and his scripted adaptation of the young adult book trilogy “Darkest Minds” is set to be directed by Jennifer Yuh Nelson and star Amandla Stenberg.
“Good Behavior” stars Michelle Dockery (“Downton Abbey”) as Letty Raines, a thief and con artist who’s out of prison and trying to be a better person. She’s back to her old tricks, stealing and giving into her addictions, when she encounters an assassin, played by Juan Diego Botto.
The show reunites executive producer Chad Hodge with author Blake Crouch, who came up with the character of Letty. The two previously worked together on the first season of Fox’s “Wayward Pines,” which was based on Crouch’s book “Pines.” Hodge tells us how their relationship has proven fruitful.
Also on this edition of IndieWire’s “Turn It On,” we talked to “Parks and Recreation” executive producer Mike Schur moments after the Chicago Cubs clinched the World Series, and he told us why the show’s prediction that the Cubs would win it all was no fluke.
Meanwhile, critic Ben Travers discusses Netflix’s new royal series “The Crown.”
