Zoe Lister-Jones to star in ‘Slip’ for Roku

Roku today has announced a series order for a scripted comedy series Slip.

Colin Davis, Head of Scripted Originals at Roku:

“Zoe Lister-Jones has written a truly fantastic show with ‘SLIP.’ It was so easy to say yes to this project and we are thrilled to partner with Boat Rocker and TeaTime Pictures to bring ‘SLIP’ to The Roku Channel.”

The seven-episode series has been created, and written, by Zoe Lister-Jones, who also stars and directs every episode. The comedy will begin production in April 2022 in Toronto. It will be initially available on The Roku Channel stateside as well as Canada.

Slip tells the story of Mae Cannon (Lister-Jones), a 30-something that finds herself restless inside a marriage that totally works. The series will follow Mae through a fantastical journey of parallel universes, as she enters new relationships, trying to find her way back to her partner, and ultimately, herself.

The show hails from Boat Rocker, which will serve as the studio on the project, and TeaTime Pictures, founded by Dakota Johnson and Ro Donnelly, with Katie O’Connell joining as a partner as of January 2022. The series also marks TeaTime Pictures’ first TV series to go into production.  Johnson, Donnelly and O’Connell will serve as Executive Producers for TeaTime. Ivan Schneeberg and David Fortier, alongside Nick Nantell, executive produce for Boat Rocker.

Lister-Jones recent work includes How it Ends, which she co-wrote, co-directed, and starred in for MGM, as well as Disappointment Blvd for A24. She also previously wrote, directed, and produced The Craft: Legacy which was nominated for a 2021 GLAAD Media Award for “Outstanding Film – Wide Release.”

From scripted entertainment and documentaries to new breakout unscripted series, Roku Originals gives viewers free access to fresh entertainment. Half of the top 10 on-demand titles by reach on The Roku Channel in 2021 were Roku Originals.
