According to Charlie’s official ARG talent page, he has a new TV project in the works, called ‘Angelyne’. After a Google search, it appears to be a limited mini-series based on the life of Angelyne, an LA billboard diva. You can read more at the Hollywood Reporter.
Angelyne has an official home.
The limited series about the L.A. billboard diva, based on a Hollywood Reporter feature by senior writer Gary Baum, has landed at NBCUniversal’s newly named streaming service, Peacock.
Shameless grad Emmy Rossum and her husband and Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail are teaming with The Hollywood Reporter to adapt Baum’s investigative article about Angelyne, the mysterious billboard icon. Peacock, the ad-supported streamer set to launch in April 2020, has handed out a series order for the drama. The show was rumored in April to land as the streamer’s first original as part of Rossum’s new first-look deal with Universal Content Productions.
Rossum will star as Angelyne, the self-created pop culture icon — whose real name, uncovered in Baum’s August exposé, is Renee Goldberg. Rossum will executive produce via her Composition 8 company alongside Esmail and his UCP-based EsmailCorp banner. Esmail’s manager, Chad Hamilton, will also exec produce via Anonymous Content. The limited series project was shopped to cable and streaming outlets. Baum, who spent months researching Angelyne’s past, will serve as a consultant on the drama. Lucy Tcherniak (The End of the F***ing World) and Allison Miller will also exec produce.
