Kiernan Shipka To Star In Netflix’s Sabrina The Teenage Witch Series

Netflix has found its Sabrina. Mad Men and Feud: Bette and Joan alum Kiernan Shipka has been tapped to star as the titular heroine in Netflix’s upcoming original series based on the Archie Comics graphic novel The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

According to the description, the Untitled Sabrina Project imagines the origin and adventures of Sabrina the Teenage Witch as a dark coming-of-age story that traffics in horror, the occult and, of course, witchcraft. Tonally in the vein of Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist, this adaptation finds Sabrina wrestling to reconcile her dual nature — half-witch, half-mortal — while standing against the evil forces that threaten her, her family and the daylight world humans inhabit.

Shipka will play Sabrina Spellman, an empowered young woman, half-human, half-witch, who is just beginning her dark education as a sorceress, even as she tries to maintain a normal life as a sophomore at Baxter High. Intelligent, compassionate and brave to the point of recklessness, Sabrina is all that stands between us and the forces of darkness that threaten our world.

Originally in development at the CW as a potential companion to Riverdale, also based on characters from Archie Comics, the untitled Sabrina project landed a 20-episode, two-season, straight-to-series order at Netflix early last month.

The Netflix series comes from the same team as Riverdale: Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. TV. Aguirre-Sacasa, who penned the Riverdale pilot, and Lee Toland Krieger, who directed it, are reprising their roles on the Sabrina pilot episode. Aguirre-Sacasa executive produces with Krieger, Berlanti Prods.’ Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter as well as Archie Comics’ CEO Jon Goldwater.

“We’re all such huge fans of Kiernan’s work that when we started talking about who this new incarnation of Sabrina could be, her name was on everyone’s wish list,” said Aguirre-Sacasa. “This is a darker, more macabre version of Sabrina, and we’re incredibly excited for people to see Kiernan make this iconic character her own.”

Goldwater added, “I am thrilled that Kiernan is playing Sabrina and have no doubt that she will embody the strength, courage and boldness that has made the character a fan favorite.”

Shipka most recently appeared opposite Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange in FX’s hit event series Feud: Bette and Joan as B.D., the strong-willed teenage daughter of Bette Davis (Sarandon). She is perhaps best known for playing Sally Draper on seven seasons of the Emmy-winning AMC drama Mad Men. She recently was cast in a starring role in horror director John Leonetti’s next feature The Silence from Constantin Film and EMJAG Productions and in Charlie Kessler’s Lapham Rising, opposite Frank Langella, Candice Bergen, Kathryn Erbe and Jared Gilman.

New Project Movie: “Lapham Rising”

Kiernan Shipka, Candice Bergen, Kathryn Erbe & Jared Gilman Join Frank Langella In ‘Lapham Rising’

EXCLUSIVE: Kiernan Shipka, Candice Bergen, Kathryn Erbe and Jared Gilman have joined Frank Langella in Lapham Rising, the Charlie Kessler-directed film adaptation of Roger Rosenblatt’s bestselling novel. Langella signed on after he completed his role as the Russian spy handler on the FX drama The Americans, and after winning his fourth Tony Award for Broadway’s The Father. Rosenblatt adapted his book and the pic will shoot in the Hamptons. BCDF Pictures (Bachelorette) and the Kerry Orent Company (Money Monster) are producing.

Lapham Rising tells the story of Harry March, a retired writer whose life starts to unravel when a multimillionaire begins building a mansion across from his quiet island home in the Hamptons. Up until now, he has lived peacefully with his talking dog, Hector, a born-again Evangelical and unapologetic capitalist. To Harry, the gargantuan mansion represents the fetid and corrupt excess that has ruined modern civilization. Which means, quite simply, that this is war. Kessler makes his directing debut on the film.

Shipka went from playing Don Draper’s daughter in Mad Men to Bette Davis’s daughter B.D. Hyman in FX’s Feud; Erbe starred in Law & Order: Criminal Intent and Oz, while Gilman’s breakout came in the Wes Anderson-directed Moonrise Kingdom. Langella is repped by ICM and Circle of Confusion, Shipka by CAA and Anonymous Content, Bergen by ICM Partners, Erbe by Innovative Artists and Industry Entertainment, and Gilman by ICM and Dmand Talent. Rosenblatt is repped by the Watkins/Loomis agency.

Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon in FX’s Feud Official Trailer #1

If you can’t see the video, you can watch here.

FX Networks has just released the first FEUD trailer. In the player below, you can take a look at Ryan Murphy’s upcoming limited series about the infamous dispute between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. Headlining the show is Susan Sarandon as Bette Davis and Jessica Lange as Joan Crawford. Via the gallery viewer at the bottom of this page, you can also take a first look at the stars in character as they appear on the cover of the latest issue of EW.

From Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning Executive Producer Ryan Murphy, FEUD will premiere on Sunday, March 5 at 10 PM ET/PT on FX. The first installment begins the story of the legendary rivalry during Crawford and Davis’ collaboration on the Academy Award-nominated thriller What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?, and well after the cameras stopped rolling. The series explores how the two women endured ageism, sexism, and misogyny while struggling to hang on to success and fame in the twilight of their careers.

In addition to Oscar winners Lange and Sarandon, the cast includes Alfred Molina as the film’s director Robert Aldrich, Stanley Tucci as studio titan Jack Warner, Judy Davis as gossip columnist Hedda Hopper, Jackie Hoffman as Crawford’s housekeeper Mamacita, and Alison Wright as Aldrich’s assistant Pauline. Notable guest stars include Dominic Burgess as Crawford and Davis’ co-star Victor Buono, Academy Award winner Catherine Zeta-Jones as film star Olivia De Havilland, Sarah Paulson as Geraldine Page, Academy Award winner Kathy Bates as Joan Blondell and Kiernan Shipka as B.D., Bette Davis’ daughter.

Murphy serves as Executive Producer on FEUD along with Executive Producers Tim Minear, Alexis Martin Woodall, and Dede Gardner and Brad Pitt of Plan B Entertainment. The series is produced by Fox 21 Television Studios.

Ryan Murphy Talks Modern Parallels of ‘Feud: Bette and Joan,’ Plan for Future Seasons

The prolific producer says potential seasons of the anthology drama will not take place in Hollywood.
Since its release in 1962, What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? has become a cult classic thanks to its combination of dark comedy and camp, not to mention the enduring appeal of stars Joan Crawford and Bette Davis.

However, Ryan Murphy promises that his upcoming anthology series Feud: Bette and Joan, which looks at the making of the movie and the relationship between the two stars, will be a much “deeper” exploration.

“I wasn’t interested in doing anything that was quote unquote campy,” he told reporters Thursday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour.

“I think there’s something much more delicate and moving, and for me, what I love about the show is … the issues in the show are modern and women are still going through this sort of stuff today. Nothing has really changed. We really wanted to lean into that aspect of the show.”

The eight-part drama stars Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon as Joan and Bette, respectively, and follows how two actresses struggling to find good roles later in their careers must band together, despite their personal differences, for a film in hopes that it will change both of their career trajectories.

Exec producer Dede Gardner agreed with Murphy’s sentiment about Feud’s relevancy in 2017. “I think the show is deeply modern. I think it’s delicious in its celebration of a town that was less crowded, but I don’t think it romanticizes it. I think it’s called it out for its truisms, but it was brutal. These women were treated brutally and made to treat one another brutally,” she said. “Seemingly this was the only way anyone was going to get ahead, and I don’t think much has changed in that regard. I think we could stand to improve a great bit.”

Murphy was inspired to do the series by looking at the lack of women in Hollywood last year after several reports pointed to the startling few number of women and minorities positioned behind the camera despite the proliferation of TV shows in the Peak TV era. Since then, Murphy has launched the Half foundation, which aims to put more women behind the camera.

“What came out of that for me was a lot of very moving sentiments from women, and from that I decided to jump off into Feud,” he said.

The struggle of women in Hollywood, and particularly for aging women in Hollywood, was something Lange said is still an issue today and pointed to Amy Schumer’s take on the subject: Last F—able Day in Hollywood from her Comedy Central series, a reference that drew laughter and recognition from the crowd.

“We’ve touched on that in a very profound way. Joan was 10 years younger when this takes place than I am now, yet her career was finished because of her age,” Lange said. “What we were talking about, especially with Joan, who was known for her tremendous beauty — what happens when that beauty is no longer considered viable?”

“I think that’s a big part of the show,” added Sarandon. “What Hollywood does to women as they age, which is just a microcosm of what happens to women generally as they age whether you want to say they become invisible or they become unattractive or undesirable or whatever it is.”

Sarandon said it’s gotten better since she began acting. “When I started, it was over by 40,” she said. “You see the line being moved a little bit further.”

However, Lange was more skeptical. “I don’t think it’s changed that much really, to tell you the truth,” she said. “It’s not necessarily a question of age or looks; I think it is who is interested in these stories. If the powers that be don’t find that there’s anything viable or interesting in a story about a woman of a certain age, those films aren’t going to be made.”

Sarandon pointed to the rise of female producers and specifically actresses developing their own material. Fittingly, Murphy told reporters after the panel that both Lange and Sarandon would remain producers on future installments of Feud even if they do not return onscreen.

When discussing potential future seasons of the drama, Murphy said they would not be set in Hollywood and would not center on women. One possibility is a story set in the 16th century, but he is also going out to friends in the industry like Mark Ruffalo about what other famous feuds might be worth bringing to the small screen.

Feud premieres Sunday, March 5 at 10 p.m. on FX.
