"The Bubble" New Comedy Project for David Duchovny

Judd Apatow Pandemic-Inspired Comedy 'The Bubble'

The feature project, which gets underway next week, is a meta-comedy that will be about a group of actors and actresses stuck inside a pandemic bubble at a hotel attempting to complete a studio franchise film.
Sources tell THR the project takes inspiration from the real-life making of Jurassic World: Dominion, the sixth installment in the Jurassic franchise, which saw its cast stuck in the United Kingdom for months during the pandemic lockdown, with production stopping and restarting several times due to positive COVID-19 tests.

While many of the details are being kept in the hotel safe, it is known that Gillan and Pascal will play the made-up franchise’s stars while Mann and Duchovny will play a once-married acting duo now forced to quarantine under one roof.

Netflix insiders, however, say the movie has no connection to Dominion.

Apatow is directing from a script he co-wrote with Pam Brady (Hamlet 2). The filmmaker is producing via his Apatow Productions banner, with longtime collaborator Barry Mendel, who most recently worked with Apatow on The King of Staten Island, set to executive produce. The project marks Apatow’s first undertaking away from his longtime home of Universal in over 15 years.

Bakalova is repped by CAA, Insight Management & Production and JupiterLights Pictures, while Gillan is repped by UTA and Jackoway Austen.

Pascal is repped by WME, Anonymous Content and Jackoway Austen, while Duchovny is represented by WME, Mosaic and Nelson Davis.
