Written by Oppenheimer, Broken follows the personal and professional life of Gemma (Paquin), a ruthless divorce attorney in Dallas, which begins to unravel when her emotionally damaged, love-addicted sister (Charity Wakefield) resurfaces, triggering self-destructive tendencies and exposing long-hidden family secrets.
Oppenheimer executive produces alongside Reese Witherspoon and her producing partner at Pacific Standard, Bruna Papandrea, for ABC Studios.
Coming off a seven-season run as Sookie Stackhouse on HBO’s True Blood, Paquin is co-starring in A+E Networks’ upcoming Roots remake. The X-Men star and Oscar winner is repped by WME and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.
