“Mumblecore” master Joe Swanberg is headed for Netflix.

The filmmaker behind micro-indie films including Kissing on the Mouth, Hannah Takes the Stairs and Uncle Kent has scored an eight-episode, straight-to-series order for comedy Easy.

The half-hour single-camera comedy series will, in mumblecore fashion, write, direct and exec produce the series. Easy is described as an anthology that explores diverse Chicago characters as they fumble through the modern maze of love, sex, technology and culture. 

The series will feature appearances from Orlando Bloom, Malin Akerman, Michael Chernus, Marc Maron, Elizabeth Reaser, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Jake Johnson, Aya Cash, Dave Franco, Jane Adams, Hannibal Burress and more.

Easy bears similar themes as former web series-turned-IFC entry Young American Bodies, which Swanberg writes, stars, exec produces and directs. [Source]

Rising stars Mackenzie Davis and Gugu Mbatha-Raw are set to star in an episode of “Black Mirror” for Netflix, TheWrap has learned.

The streaming service is in the midst of producing 12 all-new episodes of the critically acclaimed sci-fi anthology series. Production is currently under way overseas.

Owen Harris (“Kill Your Friends”) is directing the episode starring Davis and Mbatha-Raw, though plot details are being kept under wraps. He previously directed the “Be Right Back” episode of the original “Black Mirror” series, whose executive producers Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones will return in the same capacity for the new episodes.
