Pieces of Her is an upcoming drama thriller which is going to be made available to stream on the online streaming service providing platform, Netflix. The series is being developed by Lesli Linka Glatter and Charlotte Stoudt of Homeland, with the former serving as the writer and the showrunner of the series. All the episodes of the first season will be directed by Minkie Spiro, previously worked in Better Call Saul, Downton Abbey.
Bruna Papandrea is also attached to the project, who was a producer on such productions as Gone Girl and Big Little Lies. This series is an adaptation of the novel of the exact same name by author Karin Slaughter who is also a producer on the show.
Papandrea’s Made Up Stories is the production company behind the series, and it is also the company behind Anatomy of a Scandal, Netflix’s upcoming anthology series, as well as The Undoing of HBO, starring Hugh Grant and Nicole Kidman.
The plot of the series is quite lengthy as compared to the usual television synopsis, but it surely does its job at explaining the series premise quite well. Andrea surely knows everything about her mother, Laura. What will happen if the person whom you think you know best turns out to be someone you never knew at all.
She knows that she has spent her whole life in the small beachside town of Belle Isle, she knows she’s never wanted anything more than to live a quiet life as a pillar of the community; she knows she’s never kept a secret in her life.
Cast of Pieces Of Her
There are three main cast members of the series that have been announced as of now. Toni Collette will be playing the role of Laura Oliver, the mother, with a mysterious past life. Bella Heathcote, who is known for her roles in The Man in the High Castle and Neon Demon, will be playing Andy Oliver, Laura’s daughter, who embarks on a journey to discover the past of her mother.
David Wenham will be playing the role of Jasper Queller, a man from the secret past life of Laura.
As of now, no release date has been announced by the streaming giant, but considering the current production schedule, it would be fair to expect the first season of Pieces of Her sometime between late 2021 and early 2022.
