FX is developing A Teacher, a limited series based on Hannah Fidell’s buzzy Sundance feature, with Kate Mara attached to star and executive produce, Deadline is reporting.
Fidell, who wrote, directed and produced the 2013 film, will pen the adaptation, direct and executive produce the potential series.
Timelier than ever in the #metoo era, A Teacher is an exploration of consent, abuse of power, victimhood and the inevitable consequences that occur throughout an entire community after a female high school teacher (Mara) and her student are caught having an affair. FX Productions is the studio.
Mara will play the role played in the film by Lindsay Burdge. You can watch a trailer for the film, which co-starred Will Brittain, below.
