Kate Winslet to Star in HBO’s TV Series adaptation of Hernan Diaz’s Novel “Trust”

The television adaptation of Hernan Diaz’s novel Trust is getting a titanic star…

Kate Winslet will star in and produce the HBO limited series based on the 49-year-old Argentine writer’s 2022 novel.

Hernan DiazHBO acquired the recent bestseller from Riverhead Books in a competitive situation.

The book centers on a wealthy financier who is dissatisfied by a novel based on his life and his wife’s portrayal, so he asks a secretary to ghostwrite his memoir and set the record straight. The secretary, however, grows uncomfortably aware that he is rewriting history—and his wife’s place in it.

Told in four different voices and genres, Trust is a narrative puzzle that subverts the notion of truth and who gets to define it.

Diaz will also executive produce the project.

Issa López Developing Fourth Installment of HBO’s “True Detective” Series with Barry Jenkins

Issa López is holding True to her at…

The Mexican producer, writer and film director is joining forces with Barry Jenkins to develop a fourth iteration of HBO’s True Detective.

Issa LópezThe WarnerMedia-owned cable network is developing True Detective: Night Country (working title), a new take on the crime drama.

The series, created and written by Nic Pizzolatto, ran for three seasons between 2014 and 2019.

López will write, executive-produce and direct the pilot with Jenkins executive-producing via his collective Pastel alongside Adele Romanski and Mark Ceryak.

Anonymous Content, which produced the first three installments will also executive produce with other True Detective EPs, so presumably Pizzolatto will be among those listed.

López is the writer and director of Mexican film Tigers Are Not Afraid (Vuelven), which won a slew of awards over the last few years and received praise from the likes of Stephen King, Neil Gaiman and Guillermo del Toro.

The latter is also working with Lopez on a haunted western about the werewolf mythology. She is also working with Noah Hawley on Searchlight’s The Book of Souls and with Blumhouse on Our Lady of Tears.

The third season of True Detective aired on HBO in 2019 and starred Mahershala Ali and Stephen Dorff, set in the Ozarks. It was the follow up to 2015’s Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch, Rachel McAdams and Vince Vaughn-fronted series and the first season, which starred Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson.
