Showtime Picks Up 'The Big 'C''

Showtime, an American premium cable network, gave the green light for the production of a new TV series starring three-time Academy Award® nominee, three-time Emmy® winner and SAG® and Golden Globe® Award winner Laura Linney. Besides being the show's leading lady, she'll also be the executive producer of The Big 'C' (working title), a half-hour dark comedy.

Linney plays a reserved suburban wife and mother whose recent cancer diagnosis forces her to shake up her life and find hope, humour and the light side of a dark situation. Besides, she also has to deal with her immature but well-meaning husband, played by Oliver Platt. The Big 'C' will begin shooting 13 episodes later this spring for a fall 2010 debut.

Moreover, the show was created and written by Darlene Hunt, who will serve as executive producer, along with Linney, Neal H. Moritz and Vivian Cannon.
