The series stars Oscar winner Julianne Moore (Still Alice) alongside Clive Owen (Gemini Man) and will be produced under J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions banner, with the leading lady also on board as executive producer alongside Ben Stephenson. Pablo Larrain is directing with author Stephen King penning each episode.
