‘Whole Day Down' Adds Missi Pyle To Season 2 Cast

Missi Pyle and Francesca Fauci in Whole Day Down.
Whole Day Down has returned for its second season with Missi Pyle (Gone Girl, The Artist, Big Fish, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) added to the cast in the role of Nadine, Patrick's (Patrick Breen) philandering wife.

"She is hilarious and hard working," says co-creator Tai Fauci. "Her comedic timing on and off camera is absolute perfection. She was very willing to play, which is important for the show. We put her in a giant dog costume and had her make out with a busty ventriloquist dummy. She committed."

Nadine kept her affair with Patrick's best friend, Willie (Willie Garson), a secret, including the fact that he may be the real father of her son, leaving Patrick completely in the dark. But Patrick may have some secrets of his own. Will the truth come out before the apocalypse kills them all? Nothing is ever quite as it seems in the world of Whole Day Down, an irreverent, surrealist comedy which LA Weekly describes as “Mulholland Drive meets Arrested Development meets The Exorcist. A fascinating tapestry of story and symbolism that can be watched again and again.”

‘Or So the Story Goes' Is Back With Happy Thoughts For Season 2

Melissa Malone's Or So the Story Goes started years ago as an outreach program to teach local kids the ins and outs of filmmaking. Two summers ago it grew and became a "test project" that eventually turned into Season One of Or So the Story Goes: Little Rosemary (a dark retelling of Little Red Riding Hood). The show was a success and, thanks to the combined efforts of adults and teens alike, the second season ("Happy Thoughts") is now being released.

Meet the Darling family. After a rocky year, they have moved into a new home that contains a big paranormal problem- the ghosts of a charming yet homicidal teenage boy named Peter and his previous victims. When Peter's obsession with their oldest daughter puts the entire family at risk- they are left with no choice but to enlist in the help of a team of ghost hunters. Enter Jane Hook, the leader of the ghost hunting team and the one person more invested than the Darlings in ridding Peter of this world for good. Time is ticking, and it's anyone's game.

Season 2 has a total run time of 70 minutes, with 7 episodes total. Not only does the show have many talented child and teen cast members, but also a 13-year-old assistant director, as well as three teen musicians included in the soundtrack.

Three episodes have now been released in the "Happy Thoughts" arc. Watch the latest, titled "Tick Tock," below:
