Catherine Zeta-Jones' 'Queen America' (Facebook Watch) coming to Atlanta

Posted Friday, May 4, 2018 by RODNEY HO/ on his AJC Radio & TV Talk blog

Facebook's video-on-demand service Facebook Watch is shooting its first scripted production in metro Atlanta called "Queen America" starring Oscar winner Catherine Zeta-Jones.

According to Variety, the half-hour series is a dark comedy set in Oklahoma. Zeta-Jones plays a ruthless pageant coach who helps mold a hapless Samantha Stone into a possible Miss America contender.

Zeta-Jones has been doing more TV lately, including Lifetime film "Cocaine Godmother: The Griselda Blanco Story" and the Ryan Murphy anthology series "Feud."

Facebook Watch for now is free for viewers with an advertising model like traditional TV.
