Bell, best known for starring in Frozen movies and Veronica Mars series, will essay the role of heartbroken protagonist Anna. “For her, every day is the same. She sits with her wine, staring out the window, watching life go by without her.
But when a handsome neighbour moves in across the street, Anna starts to see a light at the end of the tunnel. That is until she witnesses a gruesome murder… Or did she?” the official logline read.
The 40-year-old actor will also executive produce the series with Gloria Sanchez’s Will Ferrell, Jessica Elbaum and Brittney Segal. Marti Noxon of Sharp Objects fame will serve as creative consultant on the series.
