HBO has tapped Kate Winslet (Mare of Easttown) for its new limited Trust based on the novel by Hernan Diaz.
Trust follows “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.”
HBO acquired the rights to Trust in a competitive bidding war. Diaz will executive produce the series with Winslet producing.
This will mark the third time Winslet has teamed up with HBO after starring in Mildred Pierce and Mare of Easttown, both of which saw her winning Emmy Awards for lead actress. She’ll be seen next in James Cameron’s Avatar: The Way of Water.
