The Consultant explores the sinister relationship between boss and employee, asking how far we will go to get ahead, and to survive. It is inspired by Bentley Little’s 2015 novel, a satire that is centered around Mr. Patoff, a bow-tie wearing consultant who comes to the rescue of CompWare after a prominent merger falls through and soon seemingly starts running the company.

Wolff will play Craig, a disillusioned but talented mobile app developer, working for a games studio in Los Angeles. O’Grady plays Elaine, an ambitious assistant to the CEO, who, in the wake of a tragedy, sees an opportunity to accelerate her career.

Basgallop created the series and will serve as showrunner. Shakman will direct. Basgallop and Shakman will exec produce alongside Waltz, Steve Stark, and Andrew Mittman. Kai Dolbashian is co-producer.

O’Grady is coming off playing one of the leads in Mike White’s breakout HBO series The White Lotus. She also recently starred in Little Voice, the JJ Abrams and Sara Bareilles’ series for Apple TV. Other work includes Lee Daniels’ Fox series Star and Sophia Takal’s film Black Christmas for Blumhouse, the Philip Noyce feature Above Suspicion opposite Emilia Clarke and a recurring role on CW series The Messengers. O’Grady is repped by ICM and Suskin Management.
