Grace Kaufman will take the helm of the upcoming Apple TV + movie The Sky is Everywhere, after defeating a number of rivals. This is the first time Ms. Kaufman has performed in a major production studio (via Deadline).
Prior to this project, Ms. Kaufman worked mainly in television. She played the daughter of ex-Friends star Mat Le Blanc in CBS Man With a Plan and was also in TNT’s The Last Ship. She was, however, in the independent feature Sister and All Summer’s End.
The film marks the final step in an ongoing relationship between A24 Entertainment and Apple. It is based on the novel by Jandy Nelson, who will adapt the novel and turn it into a screenplay. Josephine Decker directs and produces, with Denise Di Novi and Margaret French Isaac also occupying production roles.
