The Staircase

In 2001, Michael Peterson, an American novelist, was accused of murdering his wife Kathleen. The case was very tremendously mediatic and, after several books about the event and a Netflix documentary series, now it’s HBO Max’s turn to tell the version of it.

Antonio Campos, director of The Devil at All Hours, is the creator of The Staircase, a series starring Colin Firth and Toni Collette. The story follows Peterson, who declared that his wife had died after falling down the stairs. However, the police suspected that he was the one who beat her to death. Kathleen’s corpse had so many contusions that it seemed impossible that a fall could have left her body like this.

Also with Sophie Turner, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Dane DeHaan in its cast, The Staircase tells the story of the leading couple and how the lives of Michael Peterson and his family changed after the death of his wife.

Premiere: May 5 on HBO Max.
