Toni Collette will feature in an upcoming Netflix drama Unbelievable, based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning article “An Unbelievable Story of Rape.”
She will be joined by Merritt Wever (Nurse Jackie, Godless) and Kaitlyn Dever (Last Man Standing) in the true story of Marie (Dever), a teenager who was charged with lying about having been raped, and the two female detectives who followed a twisting path to arrive at the truth.
Collette and Wever will both play the detectives, whose lives become intertwined in their mutual pursuit of a possible serial rapist.
Lisa Cholodenko (Olive Kitteridge, The L Word, Six Feet Under) is set to direct and executive produce the first three episodes.
Toni Collette is also set to star in Wanderlust, a co-production between BBC One and Netflix.
