Annapurna Television and HBO Max will co-produce a limited series adaptation of the true crime docuseries The Staircase, based on various books and reports about the originating case, according to a release. The Staircase is “an exploration of the life of Michael Peterson, his sprawling North Carolina family, and the suspicious death of his wife, Kathleen Peterson.”
The Staircase is co-written and co-executive produced by showrunners Antonio Campos (The Devil All the Time) and Maggie Cohn (American Crime Story), and will also star Colin Firth as novelist Michael Peterson. Said Campos, “This has been a project I have been working on in one way or another since 2008. It’s been a long and winding road, but well worth the wait to be able to find partners.”
