HBO's 'Sharp Objects' Is Airing on Foxtel


HBO’s new original series based on Gillian Flynn’s bestselling novel is now airing on Foxtel. Sharp Objects is slated to rank among HBO’s long list of must-see programming including Game of Thrones, Westworld, Veep, and Big Little Lies. Don’t miss all new episodes from July 9, express from the US and exclusively available on Foxtel’s showcase.

Starring Amy Adams, Sharp Objects tells the story of reporter Camille Preaker (Adams), who decides to reconnect with her estranged family in Wind Gap, Missouri — all while investigating the murders of two young girls. As the story unfolds, Preaker tries to piece together a psychological puzzle from her past and finds herself identifying with the murdered victims a little too closely.

Sharp Objects also stars Patricia Clarkson, Matt Craven, Chris Messina, Elizabeth Perkins, and young Australian actress Eliza Scanlen, who stars in her breakout role as Amy Adam’s 13-year-old half sister, Amma. Gillian Flynn co-wrote the script with Marti Noxon, and is directed by Jean-Marc Vallee.

With HBO’s award-winning track record for its original programming, viewers can certainly expect Sharp Objects to possess the same eerie and mysterious feel of the book from the bestselling author behind Gone Girl. Don’t miss the first episode of this eight-part series on July 9 at 11AM AEST, exclusively available on Foxtel’s showcase.
