Deborah Cox has recently been confirmed for a role in the upcoming Station Eleven miniseries. It will be based on the sci-fi novel of the same name by Emily St. John Mandel. Station Eleven is being made by Patrick Sommerville, who earned 2018 box office success with his dark comedy-drama Maniac. The Paramount Studios sci-fi movie is set to premiere on HBO Max shortly and is certain to receive much critical acclaim.
Station Eleven is set in a post-apocalyptic world where few people survived a flu outbreak with a 99% mortality rate. It is about survivors as they attempt to rebuild the world from the ashes. It is also about how performers are dealing with fame and attention in a world that is dying. Station Eleven will allow us to imagine how the world would change if a virus far more devastating than COVID-19 took hold.
Its post-apocalyptic setting is more relevant than ever right now. As soon as the COVID-19 crisis hit, sales of Station Eleven skyrocketed. Emily St. John Mandel’s book has offered readers a very relatable form of escapism. Mandel’s work will be brought to an even wider audience through the upcoming miniseries that Deborah Cox will star in.
Deborah Cox will play a musician named Wendy on Station Eleven. Deborah Cox is a well-known Canadian singer-songwriter, producer, and actress. Born in 1974, she first appeared on television at just 12 years old. She is now Canada’s most influential dance artist, boasting 7 top 10 charting albums and 8 Juno Award nominations.
Deborah Cox’s character performs in ‘The Travelling Symphony.’ This is what the novel originally concentrated on. They are a theatre company that attempts to carry on its performances despite the post-apocalyptic breakdown of society. The novel follows their performances from the day of outbreak through 20 years afterward. Believing that ‘the show must go on,’ performers struggle under ever worsening conditions.
Deborah Cox will share her experiences with this exciting new drama. She had a part in the touring musical The Bodyguard. In The Bodyguard, Deborah Cox showed that she is gifted at combining her acting and musical talents. These talents were rightfully sought after for Station Eleven. Wendy’s character wasn’t in the original Station Eleven book. Patrick Sommerville created the character to accommodate Deborah Cox in the upcoming miniseries.
Station Eleven is going to benefit from the expertise of director Hiro Maurai. He’s made spectacular and harrowing worlds before. He directed Childish Gambino’s heartfelt ‘This Is America’ music video. But his work with Donald Glover has shown his versatility as a director of award-winning series as well. He was involved with the smashing ‘Atlanta’ comedy-drama.
