After its purchase of the fallen Quibi's content library, several new original series and a last hurrah for Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist, next up on the Roku Channel is the highly anticipated drama Swimming with Sharks (which at one point had been in the works as a Quibi short-form show). It's from actress Kathleen Robertson (Beverly Hills, 90210), who also serves as creator, showrunner and executive producer on the series. Kiernan Shipka stars as a young, bright-eyed new assistant at a major Hollywood studio, where she turns the tables on an abusive executive, played by Diane Kruger. With a full season drop coming on April 15th, Robertson joined MediaVillage to talk about the new series and the many hats she wore behind the scenes, along with appearing in the show.
