Emily Hampshire (Jennifer) stars as Rebecca Morgan in CHAPELWAITE, a ten-episode series based on the Stephen King short story “Jerusalem’s Lot”, which is about Captain Charles Boone (Adrien Brody) who relocates his family to the town of Preacher’s Corners, Maine after his wife dies at sea. Rebecca, an ambitious young woman who had been attending Mount Holyoke College, returns to Preacher’s Corners to write a story for the prestigious Atlantic Magazine, and applies to be the Boone family’s governess with the notion of writing about them. (Rebecca’s mother knows the reputation of Boone Manor and disapproves of the idea.) While working there, Rebecca solves a mystery that has plagued her own family for years. CHAPELWAITE is currently filming in Halifax, Nova Scotia and will be on EPIX early in 2021.
Jordan Claire Robbins (Jennifer’s assistant Anita in “Paradox”) stars as one of six strangers who wake up disoriented and trapped in an endless cornfield in ESCAPE THE FIELD. The six quickly discover that something mysterious is hunting them. Armed only with apparently random items, such as a compass, a canteen, and a revolver (with a single bullet), they must work together to escape the field or die. Others in the cast include Shane West, and Theo Rossi. Producer Jason Mooring told Tom Grater of Deadline: “With Escape The Field we are tapping into the massive popularity of escape rooms, with an elevated concept.” Directed by Emerson Moore (who also co-wrote the screenplay with Sean M Wathen and J.D. Dobkin), ESCAPE THE FIELD is currently filming in Toronto.
Jennifer K Preston (Jennifer’s alter ego in “Ouroboros”) will be Samantha Henderson in CREEP LODGE. Samantha and her husband Marc have struggled to keep their marriage together following the loss of their first child, and living in the big city has taken a toll on their baby daughter Anna. Following their doctor’s recommendations, they decide to move to a remote part of Northern England looking for a fresh start, where they discover that their new home brings with it an entirely new set of problems that extend far beyond their own volatile relationship. CREEP LODGE will be filmed in London and Northumberland in the UK. Production has not yet begun.
Preston is also Karen in the psychological thriller CHARLOTTE: THE MOVIE, the story of a young girl named Charlotte and her relationship with an older man. Written and directed by Georgia Conlan and Martin Hardwick, CHARLOTTE began filming in Yorkshire, England on 14 September. A trailer is available on YouTube.
