Kyle Chandler is trading Texas for Florida in Netflix’s “Bloodline,” marking the actor’s first smallscreen lead role since “Friday Night Lights” ended in 2011. Netflix has released the full trailer for the 13-episode drama, which centers around the Rayburns, a contemporary American family who are hard-working pillars of their Florida community. But when the black sheep and eldest son, Danny (Ben Mendelsohn), comes home for the 45th anniversary of his parents’ hotel, he threatens to expose the Rayburns’ dark secrets and shameful past, pushing his siblings to the limits of family loyalty.
Chandler and Mendelsohn star alongside Linda Cardellini, Sam Shepard, Sissy Spacek, Norbert Leo Butz, Jamie McShane, Jacinda Barrett and Enrique Murciano. The cast also includes Chloe Sevigny, Steve Pasquale, Mia Kirshner and Katie Finneran. Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman, and Glenn Kessler created and exec produce the drama.
Chandler’s recent big screen roles include “The Wolf of Wall Street” and “Argo.” Mendelsohn appeared in “Starred Up” alongside Jack O’Connell, and can currently be seen in Jude Law’s “Black Sea.”
“Bloodline” premieres Friday, March 20, on Netflix.
