HBO Orders ‘Sharp Objects’ Drama Series Starring Amy Adams

In a very competitive situation, Sharp Objects, the high-profile drama series project starring Amy Adams that was out by Entertainment One and Blumhouse in February, has landed at HBO with an eight-episode straight-to-series order. Based on the book by Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn, Sharp Objects has UnReal co-creator Marti Noxon as showrunner, Wild helmer Jean-Marc Vallée as director, and Flynn as a writer alongside Noxon. I hear there was strong interest in the project, with Netflix going aggressively after it.

The serialized drama is an adaptation of Flynn’s 2006 best-selling debut thriller novel Sharp Objects. It originated as a feature at Alliance Films, where the book was optioned in 2011 by Blumhouse. The project morphed into a TV series as it was being developed at Blumhouse, while Alliance was acquired by eOne.

Sharp Objects centers on reporter Camille Preaker (Adams) who, fresh from a brief stay at a psychiatric hospital, must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. Trying to put together a psychological puzzle from her past, Camille finds herself identifying with the young victims a bit too closely.
