Friendly Reminder on Whit Stillman’s ‘The Cosmopolitans’

You may be asking, “Is it going to series, where is the pilot, when are more episodes coming out?”  You are in luck, because Amazon has ordered more scripts, but you’ll probably have to wait a bit because Whit Stillman has new a film in post, called Love & Friendship.  Stillman’s Love & Friendship is based on a Jane Austen Novella and stars Kate Beckinsale and Chloe Sevigny.

In short, Amazon has ordered more scripts, the pilot is still available to view on amazon and when more episodes are coming out is anyone’s guess (IMDB has L&F slated for a 2016 release).  Stay tuned…

We hope the show gets picked up and that we will be seeing more of Rountree, as Whit Stillman is always great at picking fresh new talent.
