From Vanity Fair:

Beginning on August 28 Amazon Prime users will be able to watch The Cosmopolitans pilot and vote on whether it will be picked up for a full series. Should it be voted in, Stillman plans a short six-episode season for The Cosmopolitans, which he wrote “like putting two film scripts together.” And even if it doesn’t get picked up? “I’m very happy to have it as a pilot. I really feel that my IMDB page will look a little less pathetic.”

A new look

We’ve given the site a brand new look, one that’s a little more “Stillman-esque”, with type harking back to 1990′s Metropolitan.

Hopefully everything will continue to work as before, only in a rather more elegant fashion. Let us know if you find something that’s been broken in the process.

And now, back to your regular updates from Eric…

The New Yorker Movie of the Week: ‘Barcelona’

Richard Brody at the The New Yorker has picked Whit Stillman’s Barcelona for the movie of the week.

And that’s why “Barcelona” is a comedy, and why the romance that drives it is so subtle and so complex. Stillman’s current project is a pilot for a Web series set, once more, among American expatriates, this time in Paris; it’s called “The Cosmopolitans,” and I’m jumping out of my skin with impatience to see it.
