The viral craze known as the “Ice Bucket Challenge” is urging people to raise awareness for — and money to fight against — Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s Disease) by pouring a bucket of ice cold water on their heads and then nominating others to either do the same or donate money to the cause. (Many have done both.)

The ALS Association has reported donations in the millions since the challenge went viral on July 29th with this video by former Boston College baseball player Pete Frates, who suffers from the disease. Frates nominated himself after learning about the Ice Bucket Challenge from one of its founders, Pat Quinn, who is also an ALS survivor.

As history’s proven, winning an Oscar doesn’t necessarily mean an actor’s going to go on to non-stop success; for every Jennifer Lawrence or Meryl Streep, there’s people like Adrien Brody or Octavia Spencer, high-quality actors who, for some reason or another, have had a hard time finding roles worthy of their talent. Sometimes even two Oscars doesn’t promise long-term success; take Hilary Swank, who, despite winning for both Boys Don’t Cry and Million Dollar Baby, has struggled in recent years to find good work. Now, though, she’s back on the radar with You’re Not You, an upcoming drama, and according to co-star Jason Ritter, it’s a huge comeback for an actress who shouldn’t have needed one in the first place.

“She was a complete transformation, not that anyone’s surprised,” Ritter says. “She’s one of those people that can just do that. But doing it right in front of you was pretty spectacular.”

In the George C. Wolfe (Angels in America)-directed film, Swank plays Kate, a woman suffering from ALS, and who hires Bec (Emmy Rossum), a self-absorbed college student to be her caretaker. Ritter co-stars as a man who falls for Bec, only to discover he’s being used by her as revenge on an ex.

“I play this guy who meets Emmy at this place and falls for her. I can’t imagine why,” Ritter says, laughing. “Her character in this is very wild and very impulsive, and so the first night we meet, she takes me home and kind of changes my life. I’m in love with her at that point, but she’s only really done that to get revenge on this guy that she’s been sleeping with.”

The premium cable network will air 10 episodes of the Ed Helms, Hilary Swank and Ed Harris starrer.

Starz is adding to its scripted roster, giving a straight-to-series pickup for Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s TV drama The One Percent.

The premium cable network has picked up 10 episodes of the drama starring Ed Helms, Hilary Swank and Ed Harris, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

One Percent is set in the world of organic farming. Helms will play Alfred Murphy, a member of a dysfunctional family struggling to keep their farm from financial ruin, until a bizarre twist of fate changes their lives forever. Swank will play Helms’ wife, Laura Murphy, while Harris will play the family patriarch Nathaniel Cobb.

Inarritu (Babel) created the drama and will direct the first two episodes of the entry, which he co-created with Alexander Dinelaris Jr., Nicolas Giacobone and Armando Bo. They previously collaborated on Inarritu’s latest film Birdman, with One Percent reuniting the Oscar nominee with Babel’s MRC.

The One Percent marks MRC’s third straight-to-series order — and second at Starz — joining Seth MacFarlane comedy Blunt Talk, starring Patrick Stewart. The banner also has drama pilot Knifeman in the works at AMC.

The drama was first announced in November, with additional casting underway for MRC, the studio behind Netflix’s House of Cards. Starz will retain all domestic multiplatform rights, including television, home entertainment and digital.

Alejandro González Iñárritu‘s MRC series is taking shape, with Ed Helms, Hilary Swank and Ed Harris in various stages of negotiations to topline the hourlong project. In his U.S. TV debut, the Oscar-nominated Iñárritu will direct the series, titled One Percent, which he co-created with Alexander Dinelaris, Nicolas Giacobone, and Armando Bo. The four recently collaborated on the script of Iñárritu’s latest feature, black comedy Birdman Or The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance, which opened this year’s Venice Film Festival in its world premiere and was just selected as the closing night title for New York Film Festival.

One Percent is set against the backdrop of the organic farming community. Helms and Swank would play a husband and wife who are struggling professionally and personally to keep their business afloat, while Harris would play the family patriarch. MRC is expected to take the project out to buyers in a few weeks, likely seeking straight-to-series order, which has been the company’s strategy. It has been able to secure two-season pickups for its David Fincher-Kevin Spacey drama House Of Cards at Netflix and the Seth MacFarlane comedy at Starz. One Percent, which had been in the works at MRC for about nine months, reunites the company with Iñárritu after previously working with the Mexican director on his Oscar-nominated Babel. The Office and Hangover star Helms is with CAA, Principato Young and Ira Schrek. Oscar winner Swank, repped by CAA, will next be seen opposite Tommy Lee Jones in The Homesman. Oscar nominee Harris also is with CAA.
