LOS ANGELES CA - October 10, 2018 - Endeavor Content, the scripted television and feature film financing, development and sales division of Endeavor (formerly WME I IMG), will launch international sales at MIPCOM on See-Saw Films' short-form comedy series 'State of the Union' directed by Academy Award(R)-nominated, BAFTA and Emmy-winner Stephen Frears' (A Very English Scandal, Philomena), written by Academy Award(R)-nominated and BAFTA-winning writer Nick Hornby (Brooklyn, An Education) and starring Academy Award(R) and BAFTA-nominated Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl, Hostiles) and BAFTA-nominated Chris O'Dowd (Bridesmaids, 'Get Shorty').

A series of ten by ten-minute episodes, 'State of the Union' follows Louise and Tom (Pike and O'Dowd) who meet in a pub immediately before their weekly marital therapy session.

Hornby explores the complexities of marriage with his inimitable honesty and humour.

Gary Marenzi, Head of Entertainment Sales and Partnerships for Endeavor Content said: "Nick Hornby's sharp and witty script is complemented by Stephen Frears' intelligent direction and Rosamund and Chris shine in their performances as a married couple in crisis. We are delighted to be partnering with See-Saw Films once again in presenting buyers with a comedic look into the universal story of marital bliss and misery."
