Kansas City and Reprisal - Pilots ordered by Hulu *Updated with Casting News*

Share on Reddit

John Slattery, Allison Tolman, Rafe Spall to Star in Hulu Comedy Pilot

Spall (The Big Short, Life of Pi, Hot Fuzz, Roadies) stars as Ben Graham, a citizen of East K.C. who has wearily resigned himself to only being able to see his 15-year-old daughter, Clarissa — who lives in West K.C. — a few hours a day until he is approached about being a spy.

Slattery (Mad Men, Spotlight) will play Ellis Brookmeyer, Ben's former father-in-law and the last mayor of unified Kansas City who is now the leading funder of West K.C.'s secret police who will stop at nothing to bring East K.C. to its knees.

Tolman (Fargo, Brooklyn Nine-Nine) will play Tabatha Brookmeyer, Ben's ex-wife and the mother of their daughter. She left Ben and East K.C. to live with their daughter in West K.C. Her motivations then, and now, are complicated — as is her fraught relationship with her father, Ellis.

A hyper-kinetic revenge tale following a relentless femme fatale who, after being dragged and left for dead, leads a vengeful campaign against a bombastic gang of gear-heads.


Kansas City
In a modern United States riven by cultural and political divisions that’s chosen to split itself into two nations, one city, Kansas City, was too evenly divided to align with either side. So it split in two — East K.C., liberal; and West K.C., conservative. A wall was built separating the two (think Berlin.)

Absurd misinformation and enmity rage as the two cities aim to undermine each other. In West Kansas City, political heavyweight Ellis Brookmeyer (Slattery) holds sway. His former son-in-law, Ben Graham (Spall), lives in East and yearns to be reunited with his daughter Clarissa (who lives in West.) To accomplish this Ben gets involved with an East K.C. intelligence operation, with consequences he can not predict, let alone control.
