Netflix has set a September 13 launch date for Unbelievable, its eight-episode limited series that stars Toni Collette, Merritt Wever and Kaitlyn Dever. It also released a trailer for the series, which hails from from Erin Brockovich writer Susannah Grant, CBS TV Studios, studio-based producers Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly and Katie Couric.
Inspired by the real events in the Marshall Project and ProPublica Pulitzer-winning 2015 article “An Unbelievable Story of Rape” and the This American Life episode “Anatomy of Doubt,” the story revolves around Marie Adler (Dever), who files a police report claiming she’s been sexually assaulted by an intruder in her home. The investigating detectives, as well as the people closest to her, come to doubt the truth of her story. Meanwhile, hundreds of miles away, detectives Grace Rasmussen and Karen Duvall (Collette and Wever) meet while investigating an eerily similar pair of intruder rapes and partner to catch a potential serial rapist.
Grant is showrunner and executive producer and shared directing duties with Lisa Cholodenko in the intense story of unspeakable trauma, unwavering tenacity and astounding resilience.
Timberman, Beverly, Cholodenko, Couric, Ayelet Waldman, Michael Chabon, Richard Tofel, Neil Barsky, Robyn Semin and Marie executive produce along with Grant.
Check out the trailer above.
