Shiri is back on set of HULU’s “Light As A Feather”. “Back at it with this lovely lady ⭐️ #directing #lightasafeather”, wrote Shiri on Instagram. She shared a photo with actress Liana Liberato, who plays McKenna on the show.
An innocent game of “Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board” goes wrong when the five teen girls who played start dying off in the exact way that was predicted, forcing the survivors to figure out why they’re being targeted – and whether the evil force hunting them down is one of their own.
In Season 2, having inherited the curse brought on by the lethal game of “Light As A Feather,” McKenna finds herself plagued by the mysterious chrysalis on her back, a ticking clock compelling her to play a new round of the game… But McKenna refuses, unwilling to put anyone else in harm’s way. However, as the curse begins to destroy her from the inside out, she’s forced to turn to the only person who can possibly help her — Violet.
Season 2 premieres Friday, July 26th on the streaming platform.
”THE FLARE coming to FOX this Summer!“, wrote Shiri Appleby on Instagram along with the first promotional picture. Her former Roswell co-star Katherine Heigl, who is currently in Toronto filming the final season of USA’s “Suits”, commented on the photo saying “You look like such a badass in that leather jacket…plus the fact you haven’t aged in 20 years…all adds up to fantastic. I’ll be watching girl.”
“The Flare is based on fictional author TJ Whitford’s sci-fi book series, The Moon is the Sun at Night, which has been a favorite of Savage’s since childhood. The book revolves around a solar event and its effects on Earth – specifically, the small, blue-collar town of Milford, IL – and slowly unfolds into a post-apocalyptic battle for human survival.
