HBO has revealed a teaser trailer for “The Staircase”, a fictionalized HBO mini-series based on a true crime story from 2001. A man, grieving the death of his wife who fell down a staircase, is accused of murdering her. Did he really do it? Apparently so, but as always we may never really know for sure. Based on a true story, The Staircase explores the life of Michael Peterson, his sprawling North Carolina family, and the suspicious death of his wife, Kathleen Peterson. Colin Firth stars with Toni Collette as his wife, with an impressive ensemble cast including Sophie Turner, Michael Stuhlbarg, Dane DeHaan, Odessa Young, Rosemarie DeWitt, Patrick Schwarzenegger, plus Juliette Binoche and Parker Posey. HBO Max has also revealed its global premiere date, which will be May 05, 2022.

Sorry for being late with a proper update on “Pieces of Her”, which can be watched on Netflix since last Friday. I have watched it and was pleasently surprised since I didn’t like the book and stopped reading after a good 100 pages – which culminates in the series’ first episode. I was hooked through its entire run and enjoyed the performances by Toni Collette, Bella Heathcote and the ensemble cast. Additional pictures have been added to the photo gallery. Make sure to watch the entire series on Netflix.

It’s a blessed day for Toni Collette fans – not only did we get a first trailer for Netflix’s “Pieces of Her” (see below), but also the first production stills from HBO Max’s upcoming “The Staircase” miniseries, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly: As chronicled in the genre-defining docuseries of the same name, The Staircase will dramatize the darkly fascinating story of how Michael, a novelist in Durham, N.C., was accused of murdering his wife after she was found dead in a pool of blood at the bottom of a set of stairs in their home. Michael was convicted of killing Kathleen in 2003, but the story didn’t end there. In 2017, he was freed after submitting an Alford plea to the reduced charge of manslaughter. In addition to Firth and Collette, the eight-episode limited series boasts a star-studded cast including Michael Stuhlbarg, Juliette Binoche, Dane DeHaan, Rosemarie DeWitt, Tim Guinee, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Sophie Turner, Vincent Vermignon, Odessa Young, and Parker Posey. The new Staircase is written and executive-produced by showrunners Antonio Campos and Maggie Cohn, and set to debut in the spring. The Staircase docuseries first aired on the Sundance Channel in 2005, bringing increased attention to the case and spawning all manner of theories regarding Kathleen’s death. French filmmaker Jean-Xavier de Lestrade shot additional material in 2012 and 2013, and three new episodes were made for Netflix, where the docuseries is available to stream in full.

Toni Collette and Bella Heathcote star in “Pieces of Her”, a Netflix thriller series about a mother-daughter relationship that is brutally changed after both of them experience a traumatic event. Back in January, Netflix released some first-look images that showcased the possible twists and turns of the story, and now the official trailer unveils further details of the plot. The trailer showcases the ways in which Andy (Heathcote) and Laura’s (Collette) relationship starts deteriorating after the mother reacts in a whole unexpected way to a shooter invading a diner. Andy goes on to investigate her mother’s past and, the more she uncovers, the more she feels like she has no idea who Laura is. The trailer also teases Laura’s transformation from a loving mother into a mysterious figure whose expressions get less and less revealing as the story progresses. Is she a secret agent? Is she a criminal? We’ll have to wait a couple of weeks to find out. Pieces of Her is inspired by the best-selling novel by author Karin Slaughter. The story is adapted by showrunner and Emmy nominee Charlotte Stoudt. The screenwriter has worked on thriller stories for some years: she was a story editor and screenwriter for several episodes of Showtime’s Homeland and Netflix’s House of Cards. Netflix premieres Pieces of Her on March 4.

Based on Karin Slaughter’s New York Times bestselling novel, in a sleepy Georgia town a random act of violence sets off an unexpected chain of events for 30-year-old Andy Oliver and her mother Laura. Desperate for answers, Andy embarks on a dangerous journey across America, drawing her towards the dark, hidden heart of her family.
