Ryder and David Harbour (The Newsroom) are set to star in a still-untitled supernatural drama set in Long Island in 1980, written and directed by Matt and Ross Duffer, the writer/producer duo behind another supernatural small-town thriller, Wayward Pines.
The eight-episode series, previously titled Montauk, focuses on the disappearance of a young boy and the supernatural forces and “top-secret government experiments” at work in the Long Island town of Montauk. Ryder plays the boy’s mother, Joyce, and this series marks the first time she’ll lead a TV show. (She guest-starred in two episodes of Drunk History, and we’ll gladly take more of that, too.)
Get it, Winona. Take over.
