HBO Max has greenlit an eight-episode series to star Colin Firth, be produced by Annapurna Television, and to be based on the true-crime documentary “The Staircase”.
The series will use both the docuseries and books and other materials written on the case about novelist Michael Peterson (Firth), his North Carolina family and the suspicious death of his wife, Kathleen.
Antonio Campos (“The Devil All the Time”) and Maggie Cohn (“The Girl Before”) serve as writers and showrunners with Campos to direct six of the eight episodes.
Harrison Ford was initially attached to star in the series when it was first announced as being in development in late 2019.
