Vulture Recommends 14 Days With Felicity
Vulture highlights the brand new fictional podcast 14 Days with Felicity, which follows Felicity Huffman’s 14 days in jail after being convicted for her role in the 2019 College Admissions Scandal. From Christina Friel and Connor Wright, the brilliant minds behind Gay Future.
In the first episode, we encounter Huffman (played by Heléne Yorke) behind bars with a cellphone she snuck in that she uses to connect with friends, family (Jordan Klepper plays Huffman’s equally famous husband, William H. Macy), former rivals, and more. The “more” is played by remaining cast members Rachel Sennott, Ayo Edebiri, Josh Sharp, and Aaron Jackson, and includes her overzealous manager and an agent — “We can send you scripts! Auditions! You can do self-tapes. How’s the lighting in jail?” — who help her land a memoir deal. The script might seem absolutely absurd if it weren’t for the surreal shenanigans of the Hollywood elite tending to exemplify this exact sort of bizarre behavior. Join the fictionalized Huffman on her “journey of personal growth,” which, true to life, sees her missing the point entirely.
