AMC TEASES JASON SEGEL’S “DISPATCHES FROM ELSEWHERE” BY HOOVES DIRECTOR ALETHEA JONES
Australian comedy directing juggernaut, Alethea Jones, continues her run of high profile TV shows in the US with Jason Segel’s Dispatches from Elsewhere.
Starring Segel, Richard E. Grant, Andre Benjamin (Andre 3000) and Sally Field, the anthology series (which Alethea also Executive Produced) is darker than Alethea’s usual comedic work on shows such as Lodge 49, Wrecked and Dollface, and it was something she was excited to explore. “Even in my comedy work I’m always drawn to stories with elevated imaginative elements, and that’s what drew me to this show” says Jones. “I love comedy and it’s my wheelhouse, but beneath all genres is story and that’s what I’m most interested in. I can’t wait for people to see what we’ve done with Dispatches From Elsewhere”.
Alethea has quickly developed a reputation as a gold-standard actor’s director. She has directed a formidable list of talent including, Paul Rudd, Margot Robbie, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Adam Scott, Toni Collette, Kat Dennings, Alicia Silverstone, Rhys Darby, Molly Shannon and many more. We can’t wait to see what she brings to commercial projects, especially those featuring big name talent.
