Filipino American actor Deric McCabe (A Wrinkle In Time) becomes a series regular opposite Jim Sturgess and Brooklynn Prince in Apple’s upcoming untitled Hilde Lysiak series to be directed and executive produced by Jon M. Chu (Crazy Rich Asians).
The 10-episode mystery drama, which has a straight-to-series order, was inspired by the real-life story of 11-year-old Hilde Lysiak. Also described as a family drama, it follows a young girl (Prince) who moves from Brooklyn to the small lakeside town her father (Sturgess) left behind. While there, her dogged pursuit of the truth leads her to unearth a cold case that everyone in town, including her own father, tried hard to bury.
The series, from Anonymous Content and Paramount Television, was created by Ben and Kate creator Dana Fox and Dara Resnik, who executive produce with Joy Gorman Wettels and Sharlene Martin. Chu will direct and executive produce.
