Laura Dern received her seventh Emmy nomination for the HBO movie “The Tale” on Thursday, with the celebrated actress telling Variety that the film goes beyond a story of sexual abuse.
“The theme beyond sexual abuse I think is the theme of the stories and narratives we tell ourselves and how we re-tell stories perhaps in order to survive them,” she said. “There’s this scene with Common and I where he refers to me in the fashion of being a victim, and I get very angry and say, ‘I’m not a victim!’ It is in the zeitgeist for people to say they won’t accept abuse of power anymore, but that won’t change if perpetrators continue to use the tool of shaming us…I feel like we’re determined to not be a victimized generation.”
In the film, Dern stars as a professor and documentary filmmaker who is a survivor of sexual abuse, as she recalls what happened to her when she was 13. The story is based on writer-director Jennifer Fox’s own life. Dern also thanked the Television Academy for their support of the project, as she feels it draws more attention to tough subject matter.
“We know how much this kind of support means in the world of independent film, which [‘The Tale’] started as,” she said. “When it’s something with profoundly important subject matter, you’re wanting audiences to find they’re way to you, so this kind of support will continue to help people find this story, which seems to be making a great impact on so many people.”
And of course, Dern had nothing but love for the cast and crew of “Twin Peaks,” which picked up nine nominations though none in the acting categories.
“My great thrill this morning was for David Lynch to get nominated for directing because he is the greatest revolutionary,” she said. “All my artist friends just pine for anything he creates and to redefine the way stories are told…I wish that ‘Twin Peaks’ was acknowledged in every possible category because working on it blew my mind.”

Laura Dern and Jayme Lemons’ Jaywalker Pictures has inked a first-look deal with Platform One Media, and together the two banners have set an adaptation of Juliet McDaniel’s soon-to-be-released novel, “Mr. and Mrs American Pie,” as their first project.
Set in 1969, the book and series will incorporate elements of both drama and comedy as they follow the attempts of a woman to rebuild her identity after she is dismissed by her husband and her entire social set.
Dern, who was recently seen in the HBO film “The Tale” and will be in Season 2 of the premium cabler’s “Big Little Lies,” is expected to appear in the series. She and Lemons set up Jaywalker in 2017.
McDaniel is attached to write the adaptation of her debut novel, which comes out in August. She will executive produce alongside Dern, Lemons and Platform One’s Elisa Ellis. Publishing and rights management outfit Inkshares optioned the rights to “Mr. and Mrs. American Pie” to Platform One, and Inkshares’ founder, Adam Gomolin, will also exec produce.
“Jayme and I are thrilled to be working with Platform One Media,” Dern said. “We feel so inspired by the passion Katie O’Connell [Marsh] and her amazing team brings to every creative conversation.”
Platform One CEO O’Connell Marsh’s credits include “Hannibal” and “Narcos.” The former Gaumont and DreamWorks executive told Variety that the deal with Jaywalker would span a range of projects, some of which will feature Dern on screen and others in a producing role. “We are looking at things for her and Jayme to produce, for things for her to star in post-‘Big Little Lies,’” O’Connell Marsh said.
She added: “Laura and Jayme are incredibly insightful when it comes to humanizing, celebrating and exploring characters that are marginalized. If you look at Laura’s body of work, she has celebrated that, and they gravitate to concepts and characters that are meaningful and saying something…things that are wildly entertaining but also have a depth of character and a messiness.”
Platform One was formed by TPG Growth’s Evolution Media and Liberty Global. O’Connell Marsh has put together a seasoned team that includes her former Gaumont colleague Erik Pack; Courtney Conte, a former BBC Worldwide Productions exec who will be COO; and Ellis, formerly of DreamWorks.
