This "Staircase" is an eight-episode limited series exploring the life of author Michael Peterson, his North Carolina family, and the suspicious death of his wife, Kathleen Peterson.

HBO Max Unbound: WarnerMedia Delivers Stream-Centric Upfront Pitch, Promising More Bang For Ad Buck

  HBO Max Unbound: WarnerMedia Delivers Stream-Centric Upfront Pitch, Promising More Bang For Ad Buck Unshackling itself from years of streaming and premium cable restraints, WarnerMedia offered a comprehensive upfront pitch commingling HBO and Warner Bros with the company’s linear TV networks. From beginning to end, the hour-and-10-minute affair had a much different feel than previous, Turner-centric WarnerMedia upfronts. The opening sizzle reel — voiced by Issa Rae, star of HBO’s Insecure — included clips from the likes of The Sopranos, Game of Thrones and Judas and the Black Messiah, aka programming generally not known for being interrupted by commercials.

HBO Max has ordered eight episodes of the limited series , which is based on the docuseries of the same name and various books and reports on the Peterson case . Variety exclusively reported that the scripted series was in development back in 2019. “ The Staircase ” is written and executive produced by showrunners Antonio Campos and Maggie Cohn. Campos will also direct six of the eight episodes. The series is a co-production between HBO Max and Annapurna Television.

In development: Schwarzenegger , who is also executive producing the hour-long episodic series , will star as one half of a father-daughter duo around whom the plot revolves. Came up with the idea: The show is the creation of writer and producer Nick Santora, pictured in 2014. He is best known for creating the CBS series Scorpion. Of course, the new scripted drama won't be the first time Schwarzenegger has had a show on TV; he famously took over from Donald Trump as host of the reality show Celebrity Apprentice in 2017.

Firth will play Michael Peterson, Collette will play Kathleen Peterson and Turner will play Margaret Ratliff, who is one of Michael Peterson's adopted daughters. We do not yet have character assignments for Rosemarie DeWitt, Juliette Binoche, Parker Posey or Odessa Young.

In the early 2000s, Michael Peterson told authorities that his wife died at their home after falling down the stairs, but a medical examiner determined that she had been bludgeoned to death, turning Michael into a murder suspect. He was convicted in 2003 of murdering Kathleen Peterson and spent eight years in prison.

In 2011, Michael Peterson was granted a new trial, but before it could start, he submitted to an Alford plea to the reduced charge of manslaughter. He was sentenced to time already served and was set free.

‘Prodigal Son’ Update: HBO Max Passes, Series Still Being Shopped To Other Outlets Post-Fox Cancellation

  ‘Prodigal Son’ Update: HBO Max Passes, Series Still Being Shopped To Other Outlets Post-Fox Cancellation A major option for cancelled Fox drama series Prodigal Son is no longer on the table. I hear HBO Max has passed on the opportunity to pick up the series killer drama starring Michael Sheen and Tom Payne. HBO Max, whose sibling Warner Bros. TV is the lead studio on Prodigal Son and spearheading the effort to find a new home for it, was considered a logical destination as it already has streaming rights to the two existing seasons of the show. But I hear the streamer didn’t have space, and opted not to pick up a third season of Prodigal Son.

Academy Award and BAFTA Award winner Colin Firth is set to play American novelist Michael Peterson in HBO Max ‘ s limited series adaptation of the 2004 true crime docuseries The Staircase .

Patrick Schwarzenegger admires his girlfriend Abby Champion, and admires her long legs while the couple step out for a walk in LA. The handsome son of Arnold also watches Breaking Bad while in quarantine.

The original true-crime docuseries, directed by Jean-Xavier de Lestrade, was released in 2004 and updated with information in 2013 and again in 2018, when it was released as a Netflix documentary. And then there was the "Owl Theory." Go ahead and YouTube-search that. We'll wait.

The HBO Max original is co-produced by Annapurna Television. The series is written and executive produced by showrunners Antonio Campos and Maggie Cohn. Campos will direct six of the eight episodes.

A scripted adaptation of "The Staircase" had been in active development at Annapurna since 2019 and at one point had Harrison Ford attached to star and executive produce.
