LOS ANGELES: Actors Rosamund Pike and Chris O'Dowd are set to feature in "State of the Union," a short-form comedy series from Nick Hornby.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series follows a couple who are undergoing marital therapy. The series will have 10 episodes, with each episode being 10 minutes in length.

Stephen Frears, known for "A Very English Scandal," will direct all the episodes written by Hornby. The two will also executive produce the show.

The series will be produced by See-Saw Films for Sundance TV.

"I am so pleased to be working again with Stephen, Rosamund and Chris," said famous novelist and screenwriter Hornby.

"I first met Stephen when he directed 'High Fidelity', Rosamund when she revealed her wonderful comic talent in 'An Education,' and Chris when he made the forthcoming 'Juliet, Naked,' and I think they will make a tremendous team.

'State of the Union' is an unusual project, so it's all the more gratifying that we have managed to attract talent of this magnitude," he added.

The series will be shot in London this summer.

"Sundance is thrilled to partner with our good friends at See-Saw Films on this short form original production," said Sundance TV's GM, Jan Diedrichsen.

"We are fortunate to have a dream team in front of and behind the camera to bring to life Nick's intimate, entertaining and relatable story of a modern marriage to life," he added.
