Exclusive: ‘The Adderall Diaries’ Director Pamela Romanowsky Interview

 

Pamela Romanowsky makes her feature directing debut with the ambitious and evocative The Adderall Diaries, a project that’s based on Stephen Elliott’s bestselling memory. On the surface, the story centers on Stephen’s fixation with a high-profile murder case (Christian Slater plays the suspect) and the deepening rift between he and his father (the always effective Ed Harris).

The good news for actress Portia Doubleday is that the top-notch pilot for Mr. Robot is a signal of good things to come for the promising show (she’s a white collar co-worker/childhood friend of the series’ protagonist, who’s played by Rami Malek).

VIDEO: Rami Malek & Christian Slater Talk “Mr. Robot” & Paranoia

One show I have high expectations for, especially after watching the pilot, is the freshman thriller/drama Mr. Robot. The series centers on Elliot (an effectively paranoid yet inquisitive Rami Malek), a talented programmer who joins a hacker group (led by Christian Slater) that’s out to take down the firm he’s tasked to protect (he’s a security engineer during the day).
