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.
