Academy Award-winning writer Dustin Lance Black brings Jon Krakauer’s best-selling book to our screens, backed by big-name producers like Ron Howard and Brian Glazer, and featuring an equally starry cast.

The series boasts an incredible ensemble cast. Daisy Edgar-Jones plays the ill-fated Brenda, a Mormon with more progressive values, while the conservative Lafferty family include Billy Howle as her husband Alan, a scarily good Wyatt Russell, and Sam Worthington as his extremist brother.
