THR – The series is based on George Huang’s 1994 movie about a Hollywood assistant.
Kiernan Shipka and Diane Kruger are going Swimming With Sharks at Quibi.

The pair will topline the shortform streaming platform’s update of the 1994 Hollywood satire. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina star Shipka will play Lou, a young assistant at a Hollywood studio full of manipulators and schemers — none of whom know she is poised to outwit them all.

Kruger (Inglourious Basterds, FX’s The Bridge) will play Joyce, Lou’s boss and the sole head of the studio.

Writer and actress Kathleen Robertson (Little Bee, Netflix’s Northern Rescue) is adapting George Huang’s cult-classic film, which starred Frank Whaley as an assistant who turns the tables on his abusive boss (Kevin Spacey). Robertson, director Tucker Gates (Homeland, The Morning Show) and Chris Cowles (Blockers) are producing the Lionsgate TV series. Dana Brunetti and Liz Destro are executive producing along with Jay Cohen and Stephen Israel, who were EPs on the film.

Shipka currently plays the title role in Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, whose third season debuted in late January (it is renewed through its fourth cycle). The former Mad Men regular’s credits also include Feud: Bette and Joan and the Netflix movie Let It Snow. She is repped by WME, Anonymous Content and Sloane Offer.

Kruger’s recent credits include Welcome to Marwen and JT LeRoy. She is set to star with Lupita Nyong’o and Jessica Chastain in the spy thriller 355, which is set for a 2021 release. Kruger is repped by UTA, UBBA, Untitled Entertainment, Altitude and Peikoff Mahan.

Quibi has not set a premiere date for Swimming With Sharks. The mobile-centric streaming platform is slated to launch April 6 and will offer scripted and unscripted entertainment series and daily news, sports and lifestyle programming for $5 a month with ads and $8 without them.

For Kiernan Shipka’s Next Trick, She’ll Make Sabrina Disappear
Her childhood was spent on Mad Men and her adolescence as lead of Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina. Now, a new era of Kiernan Shipka is dawning.

“I’m 20, so now I’m feeling old,” Kiernan Shipka says to a chorus of laughter during a press visit to the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Vancouver set in January. She knows what that sentence sounds like. She knows you’re probably rolling your eyes right now. She knows she’s not really old. But as she’s gone from being a 7-year-old alongside Jon Hamm and January Jones on Mad Men practically straight to leading the cast of cult Netflix drama The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina, she can’t help but feel like a lot of life has already passed her by.

“When I started [filming CAOS] I was 18, and I was like, I’m supposed to be a freshman in college trying to figure out what to do with my life, and instead I’m doing this — and there’s nothing I’d rather do,” she quickly clarifies.

In the show’s third season, which was released on January 24, Sabrina Spellman has gone from being a reluctant half-witch to embracing who she is in all of her devil-worshipping, hell-traveling glory. Shipka’s own increasing self-confidence on set mirrors her character’s story — minus, you know, the regular visits to hell.

“Watching Kiernan come up as she has done since that first season has been absolutely thrilling,” CAOS co-star Michelle Gomez, who plays teacher Mary Wardwell, says during the visit. “And that girl is a phenomenal human being.”

“Not only is she masterful at everything she takes on, she also really knows how to drive a scene, which is something not all people know how to do,” Miranda Otto, who plays Sabrina’s Aunt Zelda, adds. “She keeps the energy of everything going. She really is a powerhouse.”

While Kiernan’s official role is that of Sabrina, her two years on set have resulted in her wearing a number of hats. For instance, she’s also the person responsible for throwing parties and get-togethers for the tight-knit cast, who can often be seen out and about together on the streets of Vancouver.

“We have game nights,” she tells Refinery29 on a later phone call from Vancouver. “We play running charades. And there’s a karaoke place here.”
