Toni Collette to star in Netflix adaptation of Karin Slaughter novel

We last saw Australian actress Toni Collette in the excellent Unbelievable, and now she’s set to head back to the streaming giant for a new crime series.

Deadline reports that Netflix is set to adapt top-selling Karin Slaughter’s Pieces Of Her for the small screen.

The story is set in a sleepy Georgia town where a random act of violence sets off an unexpected chain of events for 30-year-old Andy Oliver and her mother Laura (Collette). Desperate for answers, Andy embarks on a dangerous journey across America, drawing her towards the dark, hidden heart of her family.

Lovely, empathetic, modest – at first glance, Collette’s Laura Oliver seems to be the perfect Southern woman, devoted to her work as a speech pathologist and to her disaffected daughter, Andy. But when the ghosts of Laura’s past put her life in jeopardy, we discover there is more to Laura than meets the eye.

More news as we get it.
