Sharp Objects: Amy Adams’s new HBO series revealed

HBO  YouTube

The show, which consists of 8 episodes, follows the story of Camille Preaker, a reporter who returns to her hometown to cover the murder of one preteen girl and the abduction of another.

"Big Little Lies" director Jean-Marc Valee is also at the helm of "Sharp Objects", and though Amy was having discussions with him first, she was pleased the filmmaker worked on the other show first.

The star of such films as "Arrival", "American Hustle" and "Enchanted" portrays a troubled reporter back in her Missouri hometown to probe the fates of two young girls in "Sharp Objects", HBO's limited-series version of the debut novel by Gillian Flynn ("Gone Girl") that begins tonight at 9. The trailer, which you can watch below, is fantastic.

Are you excited for the mini-series?

"Succession", 10 p.m. (HBO): Logan arrives in Washington, D.C., to meet the president but worries he's been snubbed after a last-minute cancellation; Shiv explores her options.

You can catch our review on site tomorrow too. The crime series is set to premiere on HBO Sunday night and judging from everything from everything that we've seen so far, this is a show with all of the makings of a big hit. However, as with the likes of Westworld and Game of Thrones, Sharp Objects was simulcast on HBO in the U.S. and Sky Atlantic in the United Kingdom, meaning UK audiences could watch the miniseries's first episode at 2am BST.

Bucks’ Donte DiVincenzo has $3.71 in his bank account
It's probably a good thing he went pro, because his bank account could use a boost. Luckily, this situation is all about to change for DiVincenzo.

What's more, according to the AV/TV Club, there's also some Emmy buzz already surrounding Sharp Objects. As Camille tries to come to terms with her past, she finds herself identifying with the young victims.

What lies ahead on Sharp Objects episode 1?

The series will have eight episodes total.

She said: "I think that one of the things I really related to is that Camille is somebody who sort of keeps her pain on the inside".

Sharp Objects Episode 3: FixCamille relives a recent tragedy as she struggles to piece together the murders in Wind Gap; Richard grows frustrated with Chief Vickery's assumptions regarding potential suspects; a defiant Amma shows off her wild side to Camille.

The series is supposed to have a total of eight episodes, but HBO has not listed the name or date for Episode 8 yet.
