A two-time Golden Globe-winning actress and a Golden-Globe nominated actor will co-star in an upcoming miniseries for NBC.
“Mary-Louise Parker and Peter Sarsgaard will headline ['The Slap,' a] complex family drama about what happens after a man slaps another couple’s misbehaving child.,” writes our good friend James Hibberd on Entertainment Weekly’s Inside TV blog.
The article continues, “ ‘The seemingly minor domestic dispute pulls the family apart, begins to expose long-held secrets and ignites a lawsuit that challenges the core American values of all who are pulled into it,’ according to the show’s official description.”
Parker won her Golden Globes for Showtime’s “Weeds” and for HBO’s “Angels in America.”
Sarsgaard was nominated for a Golden Globe for his performance in the 2004 movie “Shattered Glass.” He was also in the cult-favorite film “Garden State” that year. On TV he starred in “The Killing” that was on AMC and then Netflix.
