About

Starring Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Kirsten Dunst (Fargo), the 10-episode series is a story about the cult of free enterprise and one woman’s relentless pursuit of the American Dream. Set in a small Orlando-adjacent town in 1992, ON BECOMING A GOD IN CENTRAL FLORIDA follows Krystal Stubbs (Dunst), a minimum-wage water park employee who lies, schemes, and cons her way up the ranks of Founders American Merchandise (FAM) — the cultish, flag-waving, multibillion-dollar pyramid scheme that drove her to ruin in the first place, run by the powerful Obie Garbeau II (Levine). Determined to make a better life for herself, Krystal dives deep into FAM and develops a tangled relationship with FAM’s most loyal and fanatical follower Cody (Pellerin), until her business begins to affect those closest to her, including Ernie (Rodriguez), her affable water park boss, and his FAM-skeptic wife Bets (Ditto). Additional casting includes Usman Ally (Veep), Julie Benz (DEXTER), Melissa De Sousa (Ladies of the Law), John Earl Jelks (True Detective), Sharon Lawrence (SHAMELESS), Josh Fadem (Better Call Saul), Da’Vine Joy Randolph (Empire), Golden Globe and Emmy winner Alexander Skarsgård (Big Little Lies) and Academy Award® winner Mary Steenburgen (The Last Man on Earth).
