Adaptation of Stephen King’s The Outsider on Hotstar Premium
Based on Stephen King’s bestselling novel of the same name, The Outsider begins by following a seemingly straightforward investigation into the gruesome murder of a young boy. But when an insidious supernatural force edges its way into the case, it leads a seasoned cop and an unorthodox investigator to question everything they believe in.
Author Stephen King said, “I write stories that are supposed to be fun, scary and make readers believe the unbelievable. I had the idea for a long time to write a story about a man who is in two places at the same time. There are some extremely strange things in this world of ours and what always interests me in stories like this is how does a person cope with the unbelievable”
The 10-episode series follows police detective Ralph Anderson (Ben Mendelsohn), as he sets out to investigate the mutilated body of 11-year old Frankie Peterson found in the Georgia woods. The mysterious circumstances surrounding this horrifying crime leads Ralph, still grieving the recent death of his own son, to bring in unorthodox private investigator Holly Gibney (Cynthia Erivo), whose uncanny abilities he hopes will help explain the unexplainable.
Cast: Jason Bateman (also director of Ep 1 and 2), Ben Mendelsohn, Cynthia Erivo, Bill Camp, Mare Winningham, Paddy Considine, Yul Vázquez, and Marc Menchaca
