Thurman has joined the cast of the upcoming Netflix original horror series from director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon (American Horror Story, The Town That Dreaded Sundown).
And it sounds a lot like Body Parts…
The series centers on: “a young heart attack survivor who becomes consumed by the mystery surrounding the heart that saved her life. However, the closer she gets to uncovering the truth about her donor’s sudden death, the more she starts taking on the characteristics of the deceased — some of which are troublingly sinister.”
Hear that one before? Whatever, I’m still optimistic.
Anyhow, Deadline Thurman will play Nancy, “the mother of the heart donor who forges a hesitant relationship with the young recipient only to find out her daughter may not be as dead as she thought.”
The series comes to us from Stephen Gaghan and was created and written by Leah Rachel, who co-showruns with Akela Cooper. Gaghan executive produces alongside Wolfgang Hammer and Winnie Kemp. The show has a 10-episode straight-to-series order.
