"Florent", Alan Cumming's passion project about colorful New York restaurateur is a half-hour dark comedy project starring The Good Wife standout Cumming in the title role. Florent will explore the light and dark of that time, as well as the craziness of a place that become a destination for everyone from NY's literati to the neighborhood hookers and hustlers, the NYPD, and the burgeoning LGBT community — all through the eyes of Florent, played by Cumming (with advice from the real restaurateur himself). Morellet ran his idiosyncratic French diner for 23 years, until his landlord drastically increased his rent.
