Jesse L. Martin's pilot got picked up to series at NBC: '‘The Irrational’ Drama Starring Jesse L. Martin Lands NBC Series Order'


The Irrational, from Arika Lisanne Mittman, was ordered to pilot in February and signs were looking good for a series order. As Deadline previously reported, a mini writers room was set up in the fall to produce a couple of backup scripts, and cast options, which had been set to expire in October, were extended through the end of this month.

Written by Mittman, The Irrational is based on Dan Ariely’s bestselling novel Predictably Irrational. The show follows on Alec Baker (Martin), a world-renowned professor of behavioral science who lends his expertise to an array of high-stakes cases involving governments, law enforcement and corporations with his unique and unexpected approach to understanding human behavior.

Congrats to Jesse!

We'll find out later whether this premieres in the Fall, or midseason.

The Snowshoe short that Grant did with Chris Wood a couple years ago will premiere on youtube March 10th.

Both Grant and Chris Wood posted about it on their instagram accounts:





Friday 3/10 @ 3pm EST / 12pm PST on YouTube ❄️👟

We took snowmobiles up to the top of a mountain in the freezing cold snow and made a thing. A 12-minute single-take short film in deep snow is no simple task (or even a guarantee that you’ll get a complete take that works), but our small and mighty crew absolutely crushed it!! And the cherry on top: I got to work with one of my favorite actors/humans, @grantgust.

So grateful for everyone who went all in for this, and I can’t wait to share SNOWSHOE with you on Friday. Join me at noon PST on YouTube to watch the premiere with me LIVE, and chat while we watch. [link in bio]

Chris wood talks about making the Snowshoe short and working with Grant Gustin in this interview at EW: https://ew.com/movies/chris-wood-talks-reuniting-with-grant-gustin-snowshoe-short-film/


... And in the same way that I was, he was hungry for a different challenge. He'd been doing The Flash for so many years. I hope it shows people how much more he can do from what they've already seen, because he really is such a gifted performer. That's also why I thought of him right away — because there's a lot of Grant's abilities that I don't feel like I have seen captured on camera yet. When he read the script, he just totally got it off the page. We met up a couple times to rehearse, and it was just a blast getting to dig in and really flesh these guys out so that when we got there on the day, we felt like we knew every beat of the dynamic inside and out, and why the characters make the decisions they make. I'm so grateful that he did this with me, and I feel closer to Grant after playing his brother. We still call each other brother now. I think it's permanent.
