Netflix is set to launch an eight-part series called “Fool Me Once,” based on the novel by Harlan Coben. The show, produced by Nicola Shindler’s Quay Street Productions, will feature Richard Armitage, Michelle Keegan, and Joanna Lumley in leading roles. Keegan plays Maya Stern, who is trying to rebuild her life after the brutal murder of her husband, Joe (Armitage). That is before her life takes a turn after she spots someone on her nanny cam who is supposed to be dead. Meanwhile, Maya’s niece and nephew are investigating the murder of their mother, which occurred months earlier.
Emmett J. Scanlan, Dino Fetscher, and Adeel Akhtar will also star in the series. Harlan Coben will executive produce the show alongside Shindler, series writer Danny Brocklehurst, and Richard Fee. David Moore will direct the series; production is already underway in Manchester and the Northwest of England.
Coben and Netflix have previously collaborated on several projects, including “Safe,” “The Stranger,” and “Stay Close.” “Fool Me Once” marks the eighth collaboration and will be relocated from the US to the UK, with a thrilling story of how secrets and deceit have the power to bring people together while simultaneously tearing them apart.
