– Netflix’s new limited series will star Jodie Whittaker and Robert Carlyle
– Written by Patrick Harbinson and directed by Stephen Daldry
– Title and additional cast members are yet to be announced
Netflix is set to release a limited series filled with drama, intrigue, and a top-notch cast. Jodie Whittaker and Robert Carlyle are confirmed as leads in the series, which is still unnamed but reported to be about a small English coastal town plagued by a deadly secret.
Penned by Patrick Harbinson, best known for his work on “Homeland” and “Fearless,” the series will be directed by Oscar-nominee Stephen Daldry, whose credits include “The Crown” and “Billy Elliot.” Sister, the company behind recent hits like “Giri/Haji” and “Chernobyl,” has partnered with Netflix to produce the series. The plot revolves around a sleepy coastal town that is rocked by the discovery of a toxic waste dump. The community’s fight for justice will unearth deep-rooted conspiracies that touch every aspect of their lives.
Whittaker is poised to exit her role as the first female Doctor on “Doctor Who,” after three seasons of playing the iconic character. Previous roles have included “Attack the Block” and “Broadchurch.” Carlyle, a household name who has starred in “Trainspotting,” “The Full Monty,” and “28 Weeks Later,” recently reunited with Danny Boyle for “T2 Trainspotting” and is starring in the third season of “COBRA.”
Though the title of the series remains undisclosed, its star-studded cast has already garnered significant anticipation. No date has been set for its release, and additional cast members are yet to be announced.
