The series, which hails from Paramount TV and Anonymous Content, is described as a Southern Gothic mystery about a psychiatrist who moves with her family from California to her husband’s hometown in Mississippi, only to uncover shameful secrets that irrevocably change the lives of everyone involved.
Hartnett will play the male lead alongside “Jane the Virgin” star Bridget Regan who will play Frances, the female lead.
Also joining the cast of the 10-episodes series are Barbara Hershey, Nick Nolte, Gail Bean, Danielle Deadwyler and Shane McRae. The original story is created and written by “Blood & Oil” co-creator Rodes Fishburne, who will serve as co-showrunner and executive producer.
