FACEBOOK WATCH ORIGINAL SERIES “SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS” PRODUCED BY BIG BEACH RENEWED FOR SEASON 2

Facebook Watch has announced that the original series, Sorry For Your Loss, produced by Big Beach has been renewed for Season 2. Starring Elizabeth Olsen, Kelly Marie Tran, Mamoudou Athie, Jovan Adepo, and Janet McTeer, Sorry For Your Loss is a half hour drama on Facebook Watch that explores the life of a young widow trying to piece her life back together.

Recently named one of the “Best Series of 2018” by The New York Times, The Atlantic, New York Magazine and many others, Sorry For Your Loss premiered to rave reviews at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival and has emerged as a critically acclaimed series with a star turn performance by Elizabeth Olsen. Cited as “a gorgeous and poignant new drama” by The Atlantic, and a series that “can make a person feel seen for the first time,” by Vulture, the show was not only lauded for being an authentic depiction of grief and survival, but it also proved to be an outlet for viewers to share their stories and find comfort within the Facebook community. This week, Elizabeth Olsen was nominated for a Critics’ Choice Award for Best Actress in a Dramatic Series.

Big Beach TV’s Robin Schwartz commented, “Everyone involved in this project put their hearts on the screen. Kit Steinkellner created an honest and vibrant world anchored by James Ponsoldt’s accomplished direction and Elizabeth Olsen’s superlative and deeply affecting performance. I was moved and surprised by the immediate outpouring of empathy that the show created on this budding streaming service and I look forward to providing more space for these important conversations during season 2.”

Produced by indie film powerhouse, Big Beach and created by award-winning playwright Kit Steinkellner, Sorry For Your Loss is executive produced by Elizabeth Olsen and James Ponsoldt, who also directed the pilot and multiple episodes of the first season. The series is also executive produced by Robin Schwartz, Marc Turtletaub and Peter Saraf for Big Beach TV, Cynthia Pett, Brad Petrigala and Jon Liebman for Brillstein Entertainment Partners and Steinkellner.

Creator/Executive Producer Kit Steinkellner’s Eisner-nominated graphic novel QUINCE was published this past year. She is also adapting the memoir Mad About Men for television with Sundial Pictures.

Big Beach TV is behind two of the top “30 Minute Dramas” available right now, Sorry For Your Loss and Vida, both critically acclaimed series that are also a hit with the audience. The Starz’ award winning and groundbreaking new series Vida is currently shooting season 2. Big Beach TV’s next project will be HBO’s Gorilla and the Bird with Jean-Marc Valée attached to direct. Big Beach is Executive Producing alongside Valée, Nathan Ross and Free Association. In addition, the writers’ room for Brujas, Big Beach’s next collaboration with Tanya Saracho and Starz, will open in early 2019.
