Based on Lauren Beukes’ best-selling novel, Shining Girls is written and executive produced by Silka Luis, who is also set as the showrunner. It will be led by Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale) as Kirby, a Chicago reporter who survived a brutal assault only to find her reality shifting as she hunts down her attacker. Joining her are Jamie Bell (Rocketman), Wagner Moura (Narcos), Phillipa Soo (Hamilton), and Amy Brenneman (Private Practice).

“The series follows Kirby Mazrachi as a Chicago newspaper archivist whose journalistic ambitions were put on hold after enduring a traumatic assault,” reads the synopsis. “When Kirby learns that a recent murder mirrors her own case, she partners with seasoned, yet troubled reporter Dan Velazquez, to uncover her attacker’s identity. As they realize these cold cases are inextricably linked, their own personal traumas and Kirby’s blurred reality allow her assailant to remain one step ahead.”
