“A woman pieces together her mother’s dark past after a violent attack in their small town brings hidden threats and deadly secrets to light,” that’s the Netflix logline of “Pieces Of Her,” a new upcoming streaming series with a terrific cast, featuring leads, Toni Collette and Bella Heathcote.
Based on Karin Slaughter’s New York Times bestselling novel, Charlotte Stoudt (“Fosse/Verdon”) wrote the series adaptation and serves as showrunner, while Minkie Spiro (“The Plot Against America”) will direct all eight episodes. The rest of the cast is not too shabby either. It includes Jessica Barden (“The Lobster”), Jacob Scipio, Joe Dempsie, Aaron Jeffery, Omari Hardwick, Gil Birmingham, David Wenham, Calum Worthy, Nicholas Burton, and Terry O’Quinn. Here’s the official synopsis:
