In a World...
Director: Lake Bell
Stars: Lake Bell, Demetri Martin, Rob Corddry, Michaela Watkins, Ken Marino, Fred Melamed
Release date: To be determined
One of the biggest casualties suffered when HBO canceled How to Make It in America: weekly quality time with the charismatic Lake Bell. On that cult-followed Entourage extension, Bell embodied the attributes of your average hipster dream girl, coming across as endearingly aloof, witty, and altogether appealing.
But who knew that she was a full-blown comedic filmmaker too? Written and directed by Bell herself, In a World… also stars the multitalented actress as a down-and-out vocal coach who finds success doing voiceovers for movie trailers, a hustle that's tougher than she initially thought.
Perhaps it's a good thing that there's no more How to Make It in America occupying Bell's time and energy. Because if In a World… ultimately has the goods, she could be the next Lena Dunham.
