Streaming giant Amazon brings James Bond villain Christoph Waltz in front of the camera for a US series with black humor.
The satire “The Consultant” revolves around the world of work, more precisely a dark relationship between boss and employee. The question of how far employees go to advance and survive is dealt with, reported the industry journals “Deadline” and “Variety” on Thursday (local time). The Amazon Prime Video series project is loosely based on a novel of the same name by the author Bentley Little, published in German in 2019 under the title “The Consultant”.
In addition to Waltz (65), who also works as executive producer on the series, screenwriter Tony Basgallop (“Servant”) and director Matt Shakman (“WandaVision”) are on board.
Christoph Waltz: From the crime scene to Tarantino
Waltz won Oscars as best supporting actor for “Inglourious Basterds” and the subsequent Tarantino western “Django Unchained”. In both films he stood out as an urbane actor with intellect and wit. All of this runs in the family, so to speak. His maternal grandparents were a popular actress at the Vienna Burgtheater and a psychoanalyst. The family’s guests included Sigmund Freud and Albert Einstein, says Christoph Waltz’s mother Elisabeth Waltz-Urbancic in her memoir.
