Showtime has ordered a half-hour comedy pilot titled Seasoned, starring married actors Mandy Patinkin and Kathryn Grody, and co-created by their son Gideon Grody-Patinkin and writer-director Ewen Wright.
The comedy series, inspired by the couple's relationship, is slated to begin production in New York City this July.
According to Showtime, "Seasoned follows the delightfully tumultuous relationship and life of a successful, gregarious, deeply committed, slightly insane married couple played by Patinkin and Grody — roles they've been rehearsing for the last 43 years."
Patinkin and Grody have also become social media stars in recent years, amassing a large following from videos posted on their TikTok and Twitter accounts.
"Mandy and Kathryn helped me and millions of online viewers get through the pandemic with their wonderfully warm, funny and inspired social media posts," said Gary Levine, President of Entertainment at Showtime. "Together they fearlessly show us the joy and the chaos of marriage, aging and grappling with the indignities of everyday life. We are thrilled to welcome them back to Showtime, along with their talented son Gideon and his partner Ewen who are expanding their posts into a half-hour comedy pilot for us."
