Claire Danes to Star in and Executive Produce Netflix Limited Series 'The Beast In Me'

Netflix unveiled plans for an enticing addition to its lineup with the announcement of a new limited series, “The Beast in Me.” Set to be a gripping mystery thriller, the show boasts an impressive lineup of talent both in front of and behind the camera.

Helmed by acclaimed showrunner and executive producer Howard Gordon, known for his work on hits like “Homeland” and “24,” and co-created by Gabe Rotter, who brings his expertise from “The X-Files,” the series promises to deliver edge-of-your-seat suspense.

At the forefront of the cast is the talented Claire Danes, known for her captivating performances in “Fleishman Is in Trouble” and “Homeland.” Danes not only takes on the lead role but also serves as an executive producer, showcasing her multifaceted talent in this project.

“The Beast in Me” follows the story of acclaimed author Aggie Wiggs, portrayed by Danes, who has withdrawn from public life following the tragic loss of her young son. However, her quiet existence is disrupted when Nile Sheldon, a renowned real estate mogul with a shadowy past, moves in next door. Played by an as-yet-unannounced actor, Sheldon becomes the unexpected inspiration for Aggie’s next book as she becomes increasingly obsessed with uncovering the truth behind his wife’s disappearance.

The logline for the series sets the stage for a gripping narrative: “At once horrified and fascinated by this man, Aggie finds herself compulsively hunting for the truth – chasing his demons while fleeing her own – in a game of cat and mouse that might turn deadly.”

Executive producers Daniel Pearle, Conan O’Brien, Jeff Ross, and David Kissinger bring their expertise to the table alongside Jodie Foster, promising a production of the highest caliber. With 20th Television serving as the studio, viewers can expect nothing short of top-tier storytelling and production values.
