Anna Paquin to be in Wigs Production of “Susanna”

WIGS_logo__130408223501-e1365460520685-200x335annapaquinbustmagazine4True Blood’s Sookie, Anna Paquin is the second True Blood star to also participate in the YouTube channel’s WIGS. Last year, Stephen Moyer was in their premiere series, “Jan.”  Now Anna will be seen in their new 12-episode web series, scripted drama written and directed by WIGS co-founder Jon Avnet that is slated to premiere later this spring.  Anna will play a new mother in the series, where she will be able to use her recent true life experiences.

Anna will co-star with Maggie Grace in Susanna as two sisters, Katie (Paquin), the mother of a newborn, and her younger sister, Susanna (Grace), an investment banker on the rise who has no interest in becoming a mother. When Katie develops acute postpartum depression and is hospitalized, Susanna must take care of her sister and her sister’s child while trying to keep the biggest business opportunity of her life from being derailed by her sister’s illness. Virginia Madsen and Rob Benedict co-star.

The female-targeted WIGS in February formed a programming, marketing and distribution partnership with Fox, which aims at expanding WIGS’ offerings as well as testing and nurturing dramatic concepts and talent in the digital realm. The idea is to build content that can be programmed on the network and/or other channels. WIGS has more than 130,000 subs and its content has been viewed more than 30 million times. Its offerings include the Julia Stiles-starrer Blue, which premiered its season 2 on March 15; Serena, starring Jennifer Garner and Alfred Molina; and Jan, about a young woman who’s first job goes away starring Madsen, Paquin’s True Blood co-star Stephen Moyer and Caitlin Gerard.

    Very happy to hear Anna will be in a WIGS series and one dealing with postpartum depression which I am familiar with having witnessed it first hand with my sister. Thanks Lynn for providing the post.

    I very much enjoyed the “Jan” series with Stephen Moyer and would like to watch to other WIGS series/episodes but I do not enjoy the 10 minute episode format and am not a regular YouTube watcher and forget to watch them – I would much prefer to see the whole episode in one sitting.
