Teaser: Amy Adams In HBO’s “Sharp Objects”

Timed with the “Westworld” second season premiere last night, HBO has released a first look trailer for their upcoming mini-series “Sharp Objects” starring Amy Adams.

Jean-Marc Vallee, who helmed the first season run of “Big Little Lies,” returns to the network with this atmospheric adaptation of “Gone Girl” author Gillian Flynn’s novel about a crime reporter recovering from a recent stay at a psychiatric center.

She begins investigating the murder of two children, and along the way has to confront even more of her own past, including the watchful eye of her mother Adora (Patricia Clarkson).

Chris Messina co-stars in the eight-episode series which was penned by “UnREAL” co-creator Marti Noxon.
