With exception to hosting Saturday Night Live a couple times, Amy Adams hasn’t appeared on a television show since her recurring gig on The Office during its first season. HBO’s new mini-series marks the 43-year-old star’s first television gig since then.
Sharp Objects is based on Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn’s novel of the same name. The eight-episode adaptation was developed by Marti Noxon (UnREAL) and directed by Emmy winner Jean-Marc Vallée (Big Little Lies, Wild). I can now see why Adams was so enticed to return to the small screen. Just look at the caliber of talent involved.
The creepy series follows Camille (Adams), a crime reporter fresh out of a psych hospital for her years of self-harm, returns to her hometown of Wind Gap, Mo., to investigate the murders of two little girls. The assignment lands her back in her childhood home under the critical eye of picture-perfect small-town socialite Adora (Patricia Clarkson), which forces Camille to confront personal demons, including spoiled half sister Amma, played by Eliza Scanlen.
No premiere date has been announced, but it’s expected to air during this summer. Check out the teaser below.
