Prime Video’s Dead Ringers is described as a modern take on Cronenberg’s cult classic movie.

Dead Ringers is created, written, and executive produced by Alice Birch (Normal People), who is also set as the showrunner. Executive producers are Weisz, Stacy O’Neil, Sue Naegle, Sean Durkin, Ali Krug, Erica Kay, Anne Carey, Polly Stokes, James G. Robinson, David Robinson, and Barbara Wall.
