Over/Under is a limited series, created and written by Theresa Gambacorta. Set over 8 episodes that take a darkly funny look at the character Margaret Diamond’s stumbling, stirring and impulsive attempts to navigate grief. The series toggles between issues of loss, intergenerational wounds and the often unspoken rage that bubbles under modern motherhood. The ways in which Margaret solves exactly how to replace her father’s remains are intercut with the events leading up to his death and we get a portrait of a woman who has a hole in the center of her world, left by her father. And no amount of donuts, obsessive mothering or phony self-help groups can fill it. She has got to figure out a way to put her father and her own restless spirit to rest.
The first two episodes were shot in Hoboken and NYC, and feature creator and writer: Theresa Gambacorta, Louis Mustillo (Mike & Molly), Olga Merediz (OITNB, Place Beyond the Pines), Myra Lucretia Taylor (Atlanta) and Meredith Holzman (The Sinner).
Over/Under participated in Network Notes at ITVfest in 2018, premiered at The New Ohio Theater on February 10th as part of The New York Indie Theater Film Festival and has two upcoming festival screenings: The Golden Door International Film Festival on 9/19/2019, and the New Jersey Web Festival on 9/20/2019.
