Jake Johnson has signed on to star opposite Ophelia Lovibond in Minx on HBO Max.
The 1970s set drama will center around an earnest young feminist (Lovibond) who joins forces with a low-rent publisher (Johnson) to create the first erotic magazine for women.
The two will be joined on the series by Idara Victor, Jessica Lowe, Lennon Parham, Michael Angarano, and Oscar Montoya, Variety reports.
The half-hour comedy series will consist of 10 episodes, helmed by Ellen Rapoport and executive produced by Paul Feig and Dan Magnante.
Ellen shared in a statement about the series moving forward, “I’m so grateful to Feigco, Lionsgate and HBO Max for seeing the potential in this story from the first time I showed up in their offices with stacks of 70s porn magazines.”
She added, “Making Minx with our ridiculously talented cast was a dream come true and I’m just thrilled that I get to do it again.”
There is no release date for Minx just yet. Stay tuned for details!
