Netflix to look Behind Her Eyes with new British drama
27th January 2019
Netflix is looking Behind Her Eyes with a new British drama.
The limited series is based on the book of the same name by Sarah Pinborough, which was published in 2018 and became a Sunday Times best-seller.
The psychological thriller follows Louise, who has made her son her world since her husband walked out. She supports them both with her part-time job in a psychiatrist’s office. Her world is thrown off kilter when she begins an affair with her new boss David and matters take an even stranger turn when she’s drawn into an unlikely friendship with his wife, Adele. Beautiful, elegant and sweet, Louise’s new friend seems perfect in every way. As she becomes obsessed by this flawless couple, entangled in the intricate web of their marriage, they each, in turn, reach out to her.
What starts as an unconventional love triangle soon becomes a dark, psychological tale of suspense and twisted revelations, as Louise finds herself caught in a dangerous web of secrets where nothing and no-one is what they seem.
The book is being adapted into a six-episode series by Angela LaManna (Hannibal, Channel Zero, The Punisher) and Steve Lightfoot (The Punisher, Hannibal), with The Crown producers Left Bank Pictures (in association with Sony Pictures Television) on board. Eliza Mellor is producing with, Suzanne Mackie, Andy Harries and Jessica Burdett attached as NWEPs for Left Bank Pictures. Lightfoot is exec-producing the drama and was tapped to write the adaptation between wrapping The Punisher Season 2 in August and its launch this month. He won’t be on the show day-to-day, as it will shoot in the UK, and he will remain available if Punisher is picked up for a third season.
The series will shoot in the UK later this year.
