Did you watch Marriage Story and think, “Man, I would love a whole series that’s just Laura Dern with a drink in her hand giving sage advice and yelling about the patriarchy”? Quibi will take you up on that request. The mobile streaming platform, which will offer bite-sized pieces of content made to be consumed in 10 minutes or less, has tapped Dern to star in the forthcoming series Just One Drink, which will be penned by Oscar-nominated screenwriter and award-winning author Nick Hornby (Brooklyn, About a Boy). Dern will star as a bartender who serves a series of customers in one-act vignettes. And honestly, that sounds like the dream.
