Billy & Billie Premieres Tuesday March 3rd @ 8PM on DirecTV's Audience Channel - Stage Portions Shot at Brooklyn Fire Proof!

The 10-episode DirecTV series comes from Neil LaBute and centers on what happens to two young adults — and stepsiblings — when they begin a romantic relationship. Their friends are confused on if they are “half siblings” or stepsiblings, while their family is creeped out by the whole prospect.

In this Audience Script to Screen, join writer/director Neil LaBute along with cast members Adam Brody, Lisa Joyce, Gia Crovatin, Jake Lacy and Phil Burke as they take you through the premise of Audience’s new series, Billy & Billie.

“We are excited to offer Billy & Billie to our viewers, as this is exactly the type of provocative and intriguing programing that they have come to expect from Audience Network,” said Chris Long, senior vp original content and production at DirecTV. “This is our third collaboration with Neil LaBute. We could not be more thrilled to be working with him again and look forward to additional projects in the future as our relationship continues to mature.”

In this Audience Script to Screen, join writer/director Neil LaBute and cast members Adam Brody and Lisa Joyce as they discuss their characters and the chemistry between them in Audience’s new series, Billy & Billie.

“I feel extremely lucky to be doing my third project with DirecTV,” LaBute said. “Bart Peters and Chris Long have been good enough to repeatedly give me a blank canvas to work on in the medium of television, and their trust has resulted in two wonderful experiments in form and content. I can’t wait to work on this new series with them as we continue to try and push the boundaries of what American television can and should be.”
