EXCLUSIVE: Adam Pally (Happy Endings) will play a major role in the sci-fi dramedy O Horizon, from O.G. filmmaker Madeleine Sackler, which wrapped production last fall. He’s set to star alongside a previously announced pair of Oscar nominees: Maria Bakalova and David Strathairn.
Pic follows Abby (Bakalova), a brilliant, young neuroscientist who has recently lost her father, Warren (Strathairn), and drowns her grief by spending her days working with a monkey named Dorey. Abby meets a programmer, Sam (Pally), who has created a technology that reconnects Abby with her beloved father.
