Amanda Seyfried has signed up to star in Peacock's new project, Long Bright River. The plot will be based on Liz Moore's 2020 novel of the same name, which was a great success.
The genre of the series is described as a “suspenseful thriller” that “follows the story of Mika (Syfried) as she patrols the Philadelphia area as a police officer. The situation is aggravated by the crisis in the sphere of illicit trafficking in psychotropic substances. When a series of murders plague the city, Miki begins to realize that her personal story may be connected to this case."
Moore is adapting the book for the screen with Nikki Toscano (The Proposal, Hunters). Both will also serve as executive producers, with Toscano also serving as showrunner. For Seyfried, “Scarlet River” will be the second mini-series in her career. In 2022, she received an Emmy and a Golden Globe for her performance as Elizabeth Holmes, the founder of Theranos, in Leaver.
