Anatomy of a Scandal: David E. Kelley Boards Netflix’s Psychological Thriller Miniseries
According to Variety, Emmy winner David E. Kelley (Big Little Lies, Goliath, Mr. Mercedes) and Emmy nominee Melissa James Gibson (House of Cards, The Americans, All Is Bright), will write, showrun, and executive produce Anatomy of a Scandal, Netflix’s upcoming psychological thriller six-part miniseries.
Based on Sarah Vaughan’s best-selling novel, Anatomy of a Scandal is an “insightful and suspenseful series about a sexual consent scandal amongst British privileged elite and the women caught up in its wake.”
The novel centers on Sophie, her husband James, who is a politician accused of a terrible crime, and Kate, the prosecuting attorney in his case. The book is described as part courtroom thriller and part psychological drama, centering on a scandal that “forces Sophie to appraise her marriage and Kate her demons.”
S.J. Clarkson (Jessica Jones, The Defenders) is attached to direct all episodes of the miniseries, and will also executive produce. The project is expected to film in the UK.
Kelley and Gibson will executive produce alongside Liza Chasin of 3Dot Productions, Bruna Papandrea, Steve Hutensky, and Allie Goss of Made Up Stories.
Vaughan and Margaret Chernin will co-executive produce.
