HBO has released the first trailer for The Outsider, a 10-episode adaptation of Stephen King’s 2017 novel of the same name.
Jason Bateman stars as Terry Maitland, a family man, Little League coach and patriarch of a small Georgia town who’s wrongfully arrested for the gruesome murder of an 11-year-old boy.
Although he has an alibi, the evidence and DNA are working strongly against him. Enter Ralph Anderson (Ben Mendelsohn), a grieving detective who enlists a private investigator with special abilities (Cynthia Erivo) to help solve the case.
Bill Camp, Mare Winningham, Paddy Considine, Julianne Nicholson, Yul Vázquez, Jeremy Bobb and Marc Menchaca also star in the series.
It will premiere with two episodes—both directed by star and executive producer Bateman—on Sunday, Jan. 12, 2020, at 9 p.m. ET.
