Tony winner and Emmy nominee Denis O’Hare (Take Me Out, American Horror Story) will star in Eric Rosen’s short film Netuser, playing Peter Sardovski, an activist whose life unravels when a nightmare about political violence turns true.
The cast also features Drama Desk and Lucille Lortel Award nominee Claybourne Elder (Bonnie and Clyde, Allegro) as Peter's husband, two-time Tony nominee Johanna Day (Sweat, Proof) as his sister-in-law, an NYPD detective who struggles to shield her brother’s family from danger, and Tatiana Wechsler as Peter’s editor Jenny.
The film, which begins shooting this month, exposes a fear that the fraying of our political discourse is the result of manipulation by foreign influences—not just in social media, but in our most private interactions.
A release is expected sometime in early 2020.
