Liv Tyler, Matt Bomer, Patrick Wilson, Marisa Coughlan, and Jerry O'Connell have finished up work on Space Station 76, the dramedy from director Jack Plotnick who made his feature film directorial debut with the project. The drama/comedy is based on a play Plotnick co-wrote with Jennifer Elise Cox, Sam Pancake, Kali Rocha and Michael Stoyanov.
Discussing the project, Plotnick stated, "I created Space Station 76 as a way to explore what it was like growing up in the suburbs in the 70's. It's also an homage to the child I was, who felt that moon colonies and flying motor homes were surely right around the corner."
The official synopsis: "Space Station 76 is a character-driven dramedy set in a 1970's version of the future, where personalities and asteroids collide. Part kitchen sink drama, part science fiction comedy, the film is about what's happening behind the scenes on a space station - the daily routine, the domestic disputes, and all the realities of the suburbs - set in space."
