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



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.




Reprisal
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.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
