Created by Jordan Weiss (Harley Quinn), Dollface follows a young woman who – after being dumped by her longtime boyfriend – must deal with her own imagination in order to literally and metaphorically re-enter the world of women, and rekindle the female friendships she left behind.

Reading Jordan’s script was like opening a window into my own brain,” Dennings said. “I’m so inspired by the stellar team we have around us and the unique world of this show, especially with Matt Spicer at the helm.”

Povitsky has signed on to star as Izzy, the co-worker to Dennings at Woom that is desperate to be accepted by her co-workers. In addition to Dennings and Povitsky, the series will also star Brenda Song (Station 19) and Lex Scott Davis (The First Purge).

The series will also be executive produced by Margot Robbie (I, Tonya), Brett Hedblom (Everly) and Tom Ackerley (I, Tonya) for LuckyChap Entertainment, as well as Bryan Unkeless (Bright), Scott Morgan (I, Tonya), Nicole King and Stephanie Laing (Vice Principals). The pilot is set to be directed by Ingrid Goes West‘s Matt Spicer.

Jordan is an exciting, new voice that has something specific and provocative to say about her generation, said Hulu’s SVP of Content, Craig Erwich. As we seek out fresh perspectives and new, thought-provoking projects, Dollface is exactly the type of relatable, yet distinct, series we know our audience will love. We can’t wait to work with Jordan and Kat, as well as our partners at ABC Signature Studios, LuckyChap Entertainment and Clubhouse Pictures, to bring this series to life.

The series marks the third collaboration between ABC Signature Studios and the streaming service following the hit Marvel series Runaways, whose second season is set to debut on Dec. 21, and the upcoming Little Fires Everywhere.

Dollface is set to begin production sometime next year.
