HBO unveiled the first teaser for its upcoming limited series Sharp Objects, based on the debut novel by Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn.
Sharp Objects focuses on a mentally unstable reporter played by Amy Adams, who returns to her hometown to investigate a series of murders. This is Adams’ first television role since her recurring role in The Office a decade ago.
“We need to talk about your daughters. One of them is dangerous, the other one’s in danger,” a character says in voiceover over footage that includes two girls playing in front of car headlights, a throng of policemen rushing toward a crime scene and Adams’ character staring at a razor blade.
The series reunites HBO with Emmy Award-winning Big Little Lies director Jean-Marc Vallee, who helmed all eight of Sharp Objects‘ episodes. The show also stars Patricia Clarkson, Chris Messina and Elizabeth Perkins. Sharp Objects premieres on HBO in July.
