I watched a couple episodes of Futureman and based on that I think I’ll throw Eliza Coupe into the mix for casting Grace when this highly popular and very successful blog gets turned into a Netflix show. She’s a little too short though so Mackenzie Davis is still in the lead probably with Betty Gilpin around the edges.
I’ve also thought of a totes cool opening scene. We have Grace living a “normal” non indigent life with a house and things. Nothing special but not the Nomadland Grace we know and love. Then she gets a text which will mean nothing to us, the viewers, at the time. She jumps on her banking app and transfers all her money to the World Food Program or Amnesty International or whathaveyou and then she turns on the rangetop in the kitchen and tosses a couple towels on the flames. She waits until the house is good and engulfed in flames and then walks to a used car place with naught more than the clothes on her back and buys a busted ass 97 Honda Civic and takes off.
Whoa, what’s going on, people will think?
The idea will be for this show that Grace’s magic is the opposite of Plutomancy – it only works when she doesn’t have much of value. She’s been “retired” for a while from the world-saving business and the first step to taking on the big bad of the series is to toss her mildly comfortable life in the trash.
