Here’s what you need to know about the limited series starring Kate Winslet.
What’s the story? As her life crumbles around her, a small-town Pennsylvania detective Mare Sheehan (Kate Winslet) investigates a local murder.
Who’s starring in it? Joining Winslet (who previously starred in HBO’s Mildred Pierce), will be:
Julianne Nicholson (Boardwalk Empire and The Outsider) as Lori Ross. She and Mare have been best friends since they were 4. Lori knows how mercurial and cutting Mare can be at times but loves and accepts her exactly as she is.
Jean Smart (Watchmen) as Helen, Mare's mother. Opinionated, stubborn and a devout Catholic, Helen never holds back on her opinions, solicited or not.
Angourie Rice (Black Mirror) as Siobhan Sheehan, Mare and Frank's daughter. Lovely and brilliant, she is rebellious and strong-headed in nature.
Evan Peters (American Horror Story: Cult) as Detective Colin Zabel, the county detective who has been called in to assist with Mare's investigation — much to her chagrin.
Cailee Spaeny (Pacific Rim: Uprising) as Erin McMenamin. A lonely teen girl who lives with her volatile father; the only love in her life is her infant son, DJ.
David Denman (Cinemax’s Outcast) as Frank Sheehan. An affable, outgoing man and a math teacher at the local high school, he married Mare when they were just 20 years old, but their marriage split apart years ago.
Who’s behind the camera? An HBO co-production with wiip; Brad Ingelsby will be serving as creator, writer, showrunner, and executive producer, alongside Craig Zobel as director and executive producer, and exeutive producers Gavin O’Connor, Gordon Gray through Mayhem Pictures, Paul Lee through wiip, Mark Roybal through wiip, and Kate Winslet.
