“Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” leading lady Kiernan Shipka and “National Treasure” actress Diane Kruger are set for the lead roles in “Swimming With Sharks,” a gender-swapped series remake of the 1994 Frank Whaley and Kevin Spacey-led film of the same name which Lionsgate is producing for the Quibi streaming service.
The series follows Lou (Shipka), a young female assistant working for Joyce (Kruger), a sole female studio head, at a company filled with manipulators, schemers and intrigue. Little do they know Lou is poised to outwit them all.
Actress Kathleen Robertson penned and produces the series which is being helmed by Tucker Gates (“Homeland”). Dana Brunetti, Liz Destro, Jay Cohen and Stephen Israel will also serve as executive producers.
