Everything we know so far.

Made my friend come to Italy and he can't eat wheat but he maintained a cool attitude.

O’Doherty, who plays Bertie in Netflix series LOVE, was nominated for an Emmy as part of the writing team on Comedy Central’s Inside Amy Schumer on which she also acted.


Forte has been twice Emmy-nominated as the lead of Fox’s comedy The Last Man on Earth which is nearing the end of Season 4. His film credits include David Wain’s National Lampoon biopic A Stupid and Futile Gesture and Alexander Payne’s Nebraska. He is repped by UTA and Rise Management.

Cool, any idea what it’s actually going to be about though?

Extra Ordinary centers on a driving instructor who must use her other-wordly gifts to save a lonely man’s daughter from a rockstar looking to use her for Satanic purposes. Epic Pictures is repping worldwide sales outside Ireland and will introduce footage to buyers next month at Cannes.

Writers Mike Ahern and Enda Loughman told Deadline:

We are delighted we have somehow convinced an incredible group of actors and funny people we really admire, along with an amazing crew and some random folk that we just wanted to meet, to join our fever dream and make this mysterious romantic oddball ghost story love comedy adventure film.
The timely script obviously hit home as it shines a light on important, serious issues like that of haunted rubbish bins in rural Ireland.”
