According to Deadline, HBO is currently developing a miniseries adaptation of Dark Places, based on Gillian Flynn’s 2009 crime novel of the same name. In 2015, the story was first adapted into a movie starring Oscar winner Charlize Theron.

What is Dark Places about?

“Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in the famous 1985 ‘Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas.’ She survived—and famously testified that her teenage brother, Ben, was the killer,” reads the official logline. “Twenty-five years later, a pair of mother/daughter true crime ‘detectives’ locate a grownup Libby and pump her for details, believing that Ben is innocent. Libby, having spent her youth working the talk show circuit, hopes to once again turn a profit off her tragic history: She’ll reconnect with the players from that night and report her findings —for a fee. As Libby’s search takes her from shabby Missouri strip clubs to abandoned Oklahoma tourist traps, the unimaginable truth emerges, and Libby finds herself right back where she started—on the run from a killer.”

HBO’s Dark Places series will be created and written by Flynn, Brett Johnson and Guerrin Gardner, with Flynn and Johnson also set as showrunners. This marks the Gone Girl author’s latest collaboration with the premium network after previously working together on the TV adaptation of her 2006 debut novel Sharp Objects, which Flynn also wrote. It will be executive produced by Theresa Kang, Caroline Garity, Andrea Iervolino and Monika Bacardi.
