Jennifer Garner is headed to TV, again. But this time, she's going behind the camera (sorry 'Alias' fans). The actress-producer is teaming with Bravo Media to exec-produce the mystery dramedy 'All the Pretty Faces.'
The plot of the series sounds quite Shakespearean, which is always fun and good and, of course, murderous.
Written by J. Mills Goodloe ('Pride,' 'Wonderful Tonight,'), 'All the Pretty Faces' is set in a place where there obviously would be pretty faces -- in Half Moon Bay, Calif., a rural beach town. At the heart of the story are two warring families (Hello Capulets and Montagues?), who have been engaged in an epic battle for decades. The death of one family member brings the two households together in search of the cure to the affliction that's been troubling them for years: immortality. (So, that's how they stay beautiful!)
Goodloe will exec-produce alongside Garner, with Juliana Janes ('Butter') also serving as a producer.
"'All the Pretty Faces' tracks with Bravo's tradition of presenting strong, relatable characters and tackling provocative subjects in an entertaining way," said Andrew Wang, VP of scripted development and production at Bravo. "By teaming up with the incredibly talented Jennifer Garner, we can bring fans a compelling family drama with a fun, mystical twist."
No word on casting yet, but it's pretty much a given that Garner, a Neutrogena spokeswoman, won't be one of them. Too bad.
