Colin Firth Will Appear as a Murderer in the Upcoming HBO Series “The Staircase”

Colin Firth and Toni Collette in “The Staircase”

HBO recently dropped the first looks for their upcoming drama The Staircase, starring Colin Firth and Toni Collette as a couple. The series will be based on a true crime story. The series will encircle Michael Peterson, an author, accused of his wife’s murder. His wife, Kathleen Peterson is found dead in their home inside a pool filled with blood.

The real Michael Peterson lived in North Carolina with his second wife. In 2003, he was convicted of killing his wife in 2001. He claimed that Kathleen fell into the pool after consuming alcohol. However, the autopsy said otherwise. The court gave him a trial 8 years later. In 2017, he filed a Alford plea to the court. The court sentenced him to a time he had served already. And was later freed.

Back in 2004, another French miniseries released of the same name revolving around Peterson’s trial. The Oscar- winning director Jean-Xavier de Lestrade directed this series.

Another series will be released this spring hailing from Warner Bros. And the limited series will stream on HBO. Antonio Campos and Maggie Cohn wrote the series. And also serve as executive producers. Warner Bros. ordered eight episodes for the series. Campos directed six of those episodes.
