Co-created by Swedish writer-producer Anders Weidemann and John Mankiewicz, Interrogation is an original concept based on a true story that spanned more than 30 years, in which a young man was charged and convicted of brutally murdering his mother. Each episode is structured around an interrogation taken directly from the real police case files, with the goal of turning the viewer into a detective.
Sarsgaard will play the detective on the case.
Based on the series’ unusual structure, CBS All Access will be experimenting with its release pattern. The first nine episodes of the series will be available to watch in any order, and the conclusive season finale will be released at a later date.
Weidemann and Mankiewicz executive produce alongside Henrik Bastin and Melissa Aouate of Bosch producer Fabrik Entertainment, a Red Arrow Studios company, for CBS TV Studios.
Sarsgaard most recently portrayed Martin Schmidt in Hulu’s praised limited series The Looming Tower. His previous TV credits include The Killing, The Slap and Wormwood. On the film side, he most recently appeared in Jackie and Loving Pablo. Sarsgaard is repped by WME and Anonymous Content.
