Shor plays a frazzled housewife-turned-female director in Jacqueline Christy's indie film to shoot in New York City.

After directing an episode of TV Land's Younger last season, Miriam Shor is set to play an embattled female filmmaker in Magic Hour, an indie comedy by Jacqueline Christy to shoot in New York City.

Shor has the lead role of Harriet, a long-suffering housewife who fulfills her dream of going to film school without telling her philandering husband and self-involved teenage daughter.

As she leads a double life as a film student and gets her first professional directing gig, Harriet discovers a film set is a cutthroat place run by bullies and their terrified minions, leaving her to decide if her film, film school and her ambition to be a director is folly or a future worth saving.

Best known to TV audiences for playing Diana Trout on Younger, Shor also has a recurring role on The Americans as Erica Haskard.

Magic Hour is produced by Christy, who also wrote the movie's script. Shor is associate producing and Jose Rivera is executive producing.

Shor is repped by Impression Entertainment, Gersh and Schreck Rose Dapello Adams Berlin & Dunham.
