Kelsey Grammer, Julia Stiles to Star in “The God Committee”

Kelsey Grammar and Julia Stiles join medial thriller, The God Committee.

The two will star alongside previously cast Janeane Garofalo and Dan Hedaya.

The God Committee explores the US organ transplant system.

“The worldwide organ shortage continues to devastate families from all walks of life,” director Austin Stark said. “I feel honored to be working with such an incredible ensemble — anchored by Kelsey, Julia, Colman, Janeane and Dan — in my quest to humanize the transplant system and bring faces to the statistics.”

According to Deadline, the story moves between two timelines: In one, a donor heart is being flown to a New York hospital and a transplant committee has an hour to decide which patient deserves the life-saving organ. The other, which takes place six years later, explores the impact of that one decision.

Stark is set to direct from his own script. Molly Conners, Amanda Bowers, Vincent Morano and Jane Oster for Phiphen are serving as producers. Joanna Meek, Ray Masucci, Erika Hampson, Richard J. Berthy, and Mark Trustin are set to executive produce.
