Kit Steinkellner, Danny Strong & Darren Aronofsky Pilot FX The Answers

Catherine Lacey’s novel The Answers is being adapted for television by Sorry for Your Loss creator Kit Steinkellner, Dopesick creator Danny Strong and Requiem for a Dream director Darren Aronofsky with Gillian Robespierre (A Teacher) directing.

The quartet have scored a pilot order for the project at FX.

Gillian Robespierre, who wrote and directed feature films Obvious Child and Landline, and has directed episodes of A Teacher and And Just Like That…, is set to direct and executive produce the pilot.
