Marlee Grace 

“My copy of this book is dog-eared, tea stained, and annotated beyond recognition. Getting to Center is like a long late night conversation with your best friend that reminds you of your own radiant messy perfection. This book will open you to knowing and loving yourself in ways that previously felt impossible. I’m jealous you get to take this ride with Marlee Grace for the first time.” Taylor Schilling, actor

NEW PROJECT: Taylor Schilling to star in ‘The Second Wave’

NEW PROJECT: Taylor Schilling to star in ‘The Second Wave’

From Deadline

Spectrum Originals has given a straight-to-series order to The Second Wave, a six-episode pandemic-themed drama from The Good Fight and Evil creators Robert & Michelle King. It is headlined by The Good Fight co-star Audra McDonald, Orange Is the New Black alumna Taylor Schilling and Steven Pasquale (The Comey Rule). The series is co-produced by Spectrum Originals and CBS Studios where the Kings are based.

Created and written by Robert and Michelle King, The Second Wave follows an unexpected, deadly second wave of the coronavirus outbreak in New York City. It follows the lives of two neighbors, Rachel (McDonald) and Lily (Schilling), as they navigate life in quarantine in New York City. While Rachel juggles her many telemedicine clients as well as a shaky, passionless marriage, Lily is upstairs just trying to convince her Wall Street clientele that her very specific skillset is still just as valuable over video as it was in person. When an unexpected, deadly second wave of the virus arrives, we follow these two women as they face unprecedented times while still juggling their careers, their loved ones… and possibly…the end of the world?

Filming is tentatively slated to begin next week and continue through about Dec. 23. In a quick turnaround, the iplan is for The Second Wave to debut on Spectrum On Demand later this year.

Schilling earned two Golden Globe and one Emmy nominations for her role as Piper Chapman in the Netflix series Orange is the New Black, which ran for seven seasons. She can currently be seen in the Hulu anthology series Monsterland and will soon be heard as the lead in new AMC animated drama series Pantheon. Schilling is repped by Gersh, Untitled Entertainment and attorney Rick Genow.

New interview of Taylor Schilling and Mary Laws with Showbizjunkies 

From Showbizjunkies:

Emmy nominee Taylor Schilling (Orange Is the New Black) leads the cast of season one episode five, “Plainfield, Illinois.” The episode explores the relationship of a couple, played by Schilling and Roberta Colindrez, as they push the boundaries between life and death. Schilling joined Monsterland showrunner and executive producer Mary Laws for a virtual roundtable discussion during New York Comic Con to discuss the source material and Schilling’s riveting (and disturbing) episode.

What type of research did you do to better understand what your character was dealing with, both in terms of having bipolar disorder and also turning into a zombie?

Taylor Schilling: “I think that I had many moments where I felt like I was experiencing my life as a horror film. And it feels that way and it feels that heightened. I think a lot of times it’s just when a script is very well written and feels very emotionally solvent, logical, it’s really just a little bit of detective work to figure out, to connect the dots from what’s happening there to what’s happening other places.

This piece made a hell of a lot more sense to me than other more seemingly simple things I’ve done.”
