Centering on the various stories of a dysfunctional and repressed Midwestern family spending one last Christmas together, "The Corrections" will star Cooper and Wiest as the pater familias and matriarch of the family, respectively, and McGregor will play Chip, the Marxist academic middle child who reunites with his brood during the holidays. Two more actors need to be cast, one to play the eldest son Gary, a successful but depressed, alcoholic banker living in Philadelphia; and the youngest, Denise, an also successful Philadelphian chef with her own romantic problems.
Scott Rudin is the producer, and so far Baumbach is shooting the drama pilot, but it's unclear how many episodes this thing will run and whether Baumach will be directing all of them (we hope he is). And no word when it'll turn up on HBO, but we hope sooner, rather than later. [Deadline and THR]
