Netflix has released the trailer for its upcoming limited series Unbelievable, inspired by real events.
The show, based on The Marshall Project and ProPublica Pulitzer Prize-winning article “An Unbelievable Story of Rape” written by T. Christian Miller and Ken Armstrong, revolves around a teenage girl who reports and eventually recants her reported rape, while states away a pair of female detectives investigate evidence that could reveal the truth.
Directed by Oscar nominees Susannah Grant and Lisa Cholodenko, the series stars Kaitlyn Dever as Marie Adler, the girl who claims she’s been sexually assaulted by an intruder in her home and is not believed by the authorities, Toni Collette and Merritt Wever as Grace Rasmussen and Karen Duvall, the two detectives who work on a similar string of crimes hundred of miles away, in an attempt to cath a potential serial rapist.
The trailer, scored by a catchy tune, gives viewers a glimpse into Marie’s life after the sexual assault, as well as into the lives of other victims. Collette and Wever are featured as ambitious detectives who do the best they can to identify the serial rapist.
Unbelievable premieres on the streaming service this fall, on September 13th.
