Published 4 years ago
With a premise that reads like it was torn from the pages of ABC’s soapy thriller Revenge, it comes as no surprise to learn Netflix’s new drama series What / If is straight from Revenge creator Mike Kelley himself.
Starring Rene Zellweger, the series, just given a green light by the streaming giant, explores the ripple effect of what happens when acceptable people start doing unacceptable things.
Set over 10 hourly instalments, Each season of the new social thriller is set tackle a different morality tale inspired by culturally consequential source material, and the power of a single fateful decision to change the trajectory of an entire life. The log lines for season one tease that “cash-strapped newlyweds weigh a lucrative but ethically dicey offer from a powerful woman.”
Alongside Zellweger (Cold Mountain, Jerry Maguire, Chicago, Bridget Jones movies) in the role of Anne, is recently announced casting addition Jane Levy (Castle Rock, Suburgatory) in the role of Lisa.
Check out What / If for more details.
Mike Kelley (Revenge, Swingtown) will serve as writer and showrunner on the show, with Mike Kelley, Melissa Loy (Page Fright); Alex Gartner, Charles Roven (Atlas Entertainment); Robert Zemeckis, Jack Rapke (Compari Entertainment) executive producing.
What / If is from Page Fright, Atlas Entertainment and Compari Entertainment in association with Warner Bros. Television.
