Connie Nielsen has signed on to appear in the upcoming TNT limited event series One Day She’ll Darken, which reunites her with her Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins and co-star Chris Pine, Deadline has revealed.
The series will tell the story of “Fauna Hodel who was given away at birth. As Fauna begins to investigate the secrets to her past, she follows a sinister trail that swirls ever closer to an infamous Hollywood gynecologist, Dr. George Hodel, a man involved in the darkest Hollywood debauchery.”
Nielsen will play “Corinna Hodel, a fading socialite beauty with a cigarette in a long black holder; an alcoholic who’s seen her family shattered, her fortunes tossed to the winds… Corinna finds herself a keeper of secrets, but none more fearsome than those she keeps from herself.”
