Directed by the Austin-based Bob Byington, the comedy Frances Ferguson focuses on a Nebraska substitute teacher who must deal with the consequences of sleeping with one of her high school students. Kaley Wheless plays the emotionally detached Frances Ferguson, whose poor judgment lands her in prison and leaves her a social pariah in her small hometown of North Platte. Wheless conceived the story with Byington; Scott King wrote the screenplay. The supporting cast includes Jennifer Prediger as Fran’s domineering mother, Keith Poulson as Fran’s estranged husband, and David Krumholtz as Fran’s group therapy leader. Byington regular Nick Offerman narrates. Frances Ferguson, which premiered during this year’s SXSW Film Festival, is now available to stream exclusively at Amazon Prime. The Austin-based Bob Byington previously directed Shameless, Olympia, RSO [Registered Sex Offender], Harmony & Me, Somebody Up There Likes Me, 7 Chinese Brothers, and Infinity Baby. Director of photography Carmen Hilbert joins Bob Byington during this interview.
