The series takes after a real-life incident
Pedro Pascal and David Harbour, stars of The Mandalorian and Stranger Things will be teaming up for the first time for an HBO limited series.
According to Deadline, Harbour and Pascal have signed on to star in the true crime series, My Dentist’s Murder Trial. Let’s take a closer look at what the series will be about and who the actors will be portraying.
Pedro Pascal and David Harbour’s Show
The series has been inspired by My Dentist’s Murder Trial: Adultery, false identities, and a lethal sedation, an article published by the New Yorker in 2017, written by James Lasdun. Lasdun personally knew Dr. Gilberto Nunez, the dentist in question. Nunez was accused for the murder of Thomas Kolman, his friend.
But as the case went on, it was found out that Nunez was not the killer, but he did have an affair with Kolman’s wife. He was still sentenced to prison on charges of fraud for impersonating a C.I.A agent. Pedro Pascal will be starring as Nunez, while Harbour’s role is presently unknown. He can either star as Kolman or as one of the detectives who played an active role in the investigation and trials. We are also not aware how closely the story will be adapted, but it is one of the most interesting crime stories out there.
David Harbour is fresh off the success of Stranger Things season four, and is up to star as Santa Clause in Violent Night, and as Jimmy Galante, a real-life mobster in The Trasher. Meanwhile, Pedro Pascal will be seen next in HBO’s The Last of Us.
My Dentist’s Murder Trial will be executive produced by Molley Allen, James Lasdun, Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal, Bruce Terris, Taylor Latham, Steve Tisch, Pedro Pascal, and David Harbour.
