Jamie Lee Curtis will find the time to tear herself away from her Oscar, though she’s likely to be hanging close to it, to attach herself to Amazon’s new comedy series The Sticky. The Halloween actress, who was initially linked to the project as an executive producer, will join the call sheet in a guest-starring position with Chris Diamantopoulos (Silicon Valley), Margo Martindale (Justified), and Guillaume Cyr, who was only just unveiled (Louis Cyr).
Moreover, Similar to Apple’s upcoming movie Beanie Bubble and Hulu’s Welcome to Chippendales, The Sticky will combine actual crime and fun to tell the odd story of a robbery that cost 70% of the world’s maple output. Ruth Landry, an experienced and hard-charging maple syrup farmer who is tired of the government stomping on her toes, is portrayed by Martindale in the starring role. Ruth enlists the aid of Mike Byrne (Diamantopoulos), a gangster, and Remy Bouchard (Cyr), a mousey security guard, to assist her navigate the bureaucracy and shape the maple company into what she wants it to be. Ruth is fighting for her property, her product, and her unconscious husband. The trio of conflicting personalities will steal the world’s most popular breakfast condiment along the route, committing what has come to be known as the “Great Canadian Maple Syrup Heist.”
Curtis’ guest part on The Sticky will be one of the few small-screen projects we’ve seen her in recently, aside from her regular role on the sadly no longer airing Scream Queens. The actress, who just won her first Oscar for the critically acclaimed film Everything Everywhere All at Once, has a busy calendar that includes leading roles in both Disney’s second iteration of the Haunted Mansion and Eli Roth’s (Cabin Fever) feature version of the computer game Borderlands.
Furthermore, The Canadian directors Michael Dowse and Joyce Wong are still in control of the plot for The Sticky, which is now shooting in Montreal. With Chris McCumber, Jeremy Gold, and Chris Dickie serving as executive producers under Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Television label, the project also serves as a reunion for Curtis and her producer of the Halloween (2018) trilogy. The show’s creators, Brian Donovan and Ed Herro, also serve as executive producers alongside Michael Dowse, Josée Vallée, Bruno Dubé, Jonathan Levine, and Gillian Bohrer of Sphere Media Inc., and Michael Dowse. Russell Goldman joins as an associate producer for Curtis’ Comet Pictures, while Lauren Grant serves as co-executive producer.
