Catherine Zeta-Jones (finally) back in Queen America, a series launched on version Facebook of Netflix
Queen America, the new comedy Alethea Jones, arrives on Facebook Watch by the end of the year. Vicki Ellis, coach beauty the most famous of Oklahoma, is driven by a Catherine Zeta-Jones a bit tyrannical.
Sort of version of a woman and the second degree of Terence Fletcher (Whiplash), Vicki Ellis is not there to be nice or polite. Its purpose is to take her as far away as possible (evil)happy who will speak to it in order to become beauty queens. And Vicky gives the tone at the start of the trailer with a note of well-salted :
“No one likes the pretty girls that expect that great things are coming “.
At least you will be warned. The series does not give in pathos and try to treat with lightness the reality is far darker that lurks behind the beauty contest, definitely in the mode after Insatiable and soon-to – Dumplin’ with Jennifer Aniston, on Netflix.
The coach and his pupil, crude and unpredictable, Samantha Cole, played by Belle Shouse, form a comic duo that promises to be explosive. It is expected, therefore, to see how the young and the young Samantha will learn to become Miss America and how she even manages to give lessons of humility to Vicki Ellis. In addition to the Project Samantha, we understand that several other characters orbiterons around the coach. But hey, the trailer’s still very vague on how the characters perceive the coach.
Queen America mark the return of Catherine Zeta-Jones, a little absent for the past few years on the side of the first roles. It was well apparent in a Feud, in Red 2, still side Effects of Steven Soderbergh or even Rock Forever, but it is necessary to go back almost ten years to be at the head of a film, with My babysitter.
