Two of the biggest social media stars of the pandemic have their eyes on the small screen.
Mandy Patinkin and wife Catherine Grodyincluding slices of life filmed by his son Gideon Grody-Patinkin has become comfort food for millions during the COVID-19 pandemic, is set to star in a pilot for Showtime called Seasoned.
“The show is inspired by the couple’s real life and relationship,” according to Variety. “It follows the delightfully tumultuous relationship and life of a successful, gregarious, deeply committed, and slightly crazy married couple.”
The married couple, as you might have guessed, will be played by Mandy and Kathryn. Gideon is co-creator of the project.
In March 2020, Mandy, Kathryn, and then their 34-year-old son, Gideon, retired to the family home in upstate New York. Gideon started recording videos of his lovingly eccentric parents for fun, only to find he wasn’t the only person who found them entertaining.
Gideon began posting the videos on social media, including this one on the pizza rat which garnered nearly 200,000 views, and two legends were born.
