Star Trek: Beyond‘s Chris Pine will be co-starring in a new six-episode TNT series.
The dramatic series, One Day She’ll Darken, is based on the autobiography of Fauna Hodel.
One Day She’ll Darken is the “story of Hodel, who was given away by her teenage birth mother to a black restroom attendant in a Nevada casino in 1949. As Hodel begins to investigate the secrets to her past, she follows a sinister trail that swirls ever closer to an infamous Hollywood gynecologist, Dr. George Hodel, a man involved in the darkest Hollywood debauchery, the spider in the web around the legendary ‘Black Dahlia’ murder of Elizabeth Short in Los Angeles in 1947.”
Pine will play Jay Singletary, a “former Marine-turned-hack reporter and paparazzo, [who was] disgraced over his story about Hodel years prior, but now he sees a glimmer of redemption. Jay sees an opportunity, but is also caught in a moral quandary.”
One Day She’ll Darken will start filming in the autumn. No release date has been set yet.
