Netflix is adapting author Karin Slaughter’s bestselling 2018 book Pieces of Her. And today we hear that none other than The Sixth Sense and Hereditary star Toni Collette is set to headline.
Deadline reports that the eight-episode series is headed our way from the all-female creative team of executive producers Lesli Linka Glatter, Charlotte Stoudt, and Bruna Papandrea.
Minkie Spiro (The Plot Against America, Fosse/Verdon, Dead To Me, The Village) will direct.
Pieces of Her is set in a sleepy Georgia town where a random act of violence sets off an unexpected chain of events for 30-year-old Andy Oliver and her mother Laura (Collette). Desperate for answers, Andy embarks on a dangerous journey across America, drawing her towards the dark, hidden heart of her family. Lovely, empathetic, modest – at first glance, Collette’s Laura Oliver seems to be the perfect Southern woman, devoted to her work as a speech pathologist and to her disaffected daughter, Andy. But when the ghosts of Laura’s past put her life in jeopardy, we discover there is more to Laura than meets the eye.
It is written by Charlotte Stoudt who serves as showrunner and executive produces with Slaughter, Papandrea, Spiro, Glatter, Steve Hutensky, Casey Haver, and Janice Williams.
