HBO developing “A Teacher” indie into drama series

PanARMENIAN.Net - HBO is developing a drama series from indie film “A Teacher”, TheWrap reported.

Jay Duplass, Mark Duplass and Michael Costigan will executive-produce the drama project. The film’s writer and director, Hannah Fidell, will executive produce and write the pilot with Daniel Brocklehurst (“Shameless”).

Keeping the film’s title, the possible series will similarly follow a 20-something high school teacher who’s having an affair with one of her students.

Fiddell’s first feature film, “A Teacher,” premiered at last year’s Sundance Film Festival, and later screened at other festivals and received honors including award wins at the Oldenburg Film Festival, SXSW Film Festival and the Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival.

It starred Lindsay Burdge in the lead role with Will Brittain as the student, Eric Tull. It also starred Jennifer Prediger, Jonny Mars, Julie Phillips and Chris Doubek.
