Phylicia Rashad, Alexis Bledel Join 'Outliving

Phylicia Rashad, Andre Braugher, Alexis Bledel and Kal Penn have been added to the “Outliving Emily.”

The project is produced by Josh Sugarman through the Tenafly Film Co. “Outliving Emily” is directed by Eric Weber from his own script, based on his short story about the tumultuous marriage of a couple, Tim and Emily Hanratty, over half a century.

The six vignettes are portrayed by twelve different actors, with real-life husband and wife Olympia Dukakis and Louis Zorich playing the couple in the final stages of their life together.

Jeremy Jordan (“Last Five Years”), Adam Rose (“Up in the Air”) and Luke Brandon Field (“Blackwood”) are also starring.
