From the producers of “Big Little Lies” and “The Undoing” comes a new Netflix horror series that premieres March 4.
What would you do if your mother suddenly wasn’t what you thought she was?
NetflixThe mystery thriller “Pieces of Her” stars Bella Heathcote as Andy Oliver, who is saved from a seemingly random act of violence from her mother Laura, played by Toni Colette. The only problem? Laura’s past doesn’t seem to add up.
Based on the New York Times best-selling novel by Karin Slaughter and led by the producers of “Big Little Lies” and “The Undoing,” the upcoming series “Pieces of Her” will premiere on April 1, 2020. March 4 on Netflix.
Charlotte Stoudt, who wrote the film adaptation, serves as host and executive producer, with Minkie Spiro directing. The eight-episode series is executive produced by Slaughter, Steve Hutensky, Casey Harver, Janice Williams, Lesli Linka Glatter and Bruna Papandrea.
Jessica Barden, Jacob Scipio, Joe Dempsie, Aaron Jeffery, Omari Hardwick, Gil Birmingham, David Wenham, Calum Worthy, Nicholas Burton and Terry O’Quinn also star in the film, which begins in Georgia and stretches across the country with as Andy (Heathcote) searching for answers.
“There are just some things you don’t understand,” warns Laura (Collette).
Oscar Nominee Collette Says Vogue that “Pieces of Her” “requires more emotion” than she anticipated. “I had no idea how intense it was going to be and it ended up being really exhausting,” Collette said. “I think I let myself be fooled, because I might not have done it if I had known where it was taking me.”
Collette added, “I would get bored playing more outspoken women. I like people who dig deep and take control of their lives – the good, the bad and the ugly. We make a lot of choices, and now it’s time for Laura to take responsibility for herself.”
Elsewhere on Netflix, Collette received a Primetime Emmy Award nomination for best supporting actress in a miniseries for 2019 by streamer “Unbelievable.”
“Pieces of Her” is just Netflix’s latest novel adaptation. David E. Kelley’s “Anatomy of a Scandal” will hit the streaming platform later this year, based on Sarah Vaughan’s novel of the same name. The anthology series is expected to feature a new case each season, with the first plot introducing the investigation of James Whitehouse (Rupert Friend), a British politician accused of rape. His wife, Sophie (Sienna Miller), is convinced of his innocence, but her loyalty is tested by the prosecution of Kate Woodcroft (Michelle Dockery).
