Kyle Chandler, Linda Cardellini and Sissy Spaceck in new Netflix drama show
Reports at THR and Deadline have Sissy Spacek, Linda Cardellini, and Ben Mendelsohn (The Place Beyond the Pines) joining Friday Night Lights alum Kyle Chandler in a new untitled Netflix series, described as a psychological thriller. The 13-episode show comes from Damages creators Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman, and Glenn Kessler and revolves around “a close-knit family of adult siblings whose secrets and scars are revealed when the black sheep oldest brother, Danny (Mendelsohn), returns home.”
Chandler and Cardellini will play the other siblings, and Spacek will play the family’s matriarch. This is a high-profile show not only because it marks the next effort from the Damages creators, but also because it’s Kyle Chandler’s return to television after the incredible Friday Night Lights.
Kyle Chandler has been one of the most in-demand actors in pilot season since FNL ended its run, and he shot a pilot about the Vatican, directed by Ridley Scott, that was not picked up by Showtime. Expect this new series to debut on Netflix late this year or early next year. Source: collider.com
