Following “Sharp Objects,” HBO early next year is bringing another limited series in metro Atlanta called “The Outsider,” based on the recent Stephen King book.
The series will star Ben Mendelsohn, who won an Emmy-winning on Netflix’s “Bloodline.” Others involved as producers: “The Night Of” creator Richard Price and “Ozark” star Jason Bateman’s Aggregate Films.
Bateman is directing the first two episodes and Deadline.com said he may guest star.
According to the synopsis, an investigation into the gruesome murder of a local boy leads a seasoned cop and an unorthodox investigator to question everything they believe to be real, as an insidious supernatural force edges its way into the case.
It’s being touted as a ten-episode limited series.
HBO is also shooting in metro Atlanta the big-budget series superhero drama “Watchmen” starring Regina King, Louis Gossett Jr., Don Johnson and Jeremy Irons.
Part of “Sharp Objects” was shot in Barnesville, GA in 2017.
