Thora Birch On The New Realm-Produced Original Podcast “Overleaper” & Future Projects

Today, Realm — the audio entertainment company with more fiction podcasts in the top charts than any other company, as nearly 90 percent of Realm shows have charted among the top 100 most popular fiction podcasts in the U.S. — has released the new original podcast Overleaper. Filled with twists and turns, the espionage thriller tells the story of an American soldier who must stop her doppelganger’s plans to assassinate the President of the United States. The new 10-episode fiction podcast stars Thora Birch (Ghost World, Hocus Pocus, The Walking Dead), was written by Sam Boush, was produced for Realm Studios by Diana Pho, Fred Greenhalgh and Hayley Wagreich, directed by Fred Greenhalgh, and executive produced by Molly Barton, Marci Wiseman, and Julian Yap.

Within Overleaper, Thora Birch plays Special Forces Staff Sergeant Audrey Beach, a determined career soldier. The namesake Overleaper is Audrey, but in her timeline, Beach has suffered far worse pain. Her daughter Lydia is dead — murdered in a tragic military mishap — and her quest for revenge led her to sacrifice her loyalty to the United States. A dangerous country in her dimension aided the her vengeful mission, for a price: replace the Audrey Beach in our world and assassinate the President, no matter the personal price. With nothing left to live for, the Overleaper agrees. To defend the nation and protect her good name, the real Audrey Beach must escape Afghanistan and traverse the globe, evading U.S. and international authorities in order to thwart the aforementioned Overleaper’s plan.

On May 2, 2022, I had the pleasure of speaking with Thora Birch via Zoom, as embedded below. Beyond Overleaper, we talked a little about her film Ghost World and future projects for her as a director. More on Birch, Realm and Overleaper can be found online by clicking here, here and here.
