According to a Deadline report, Moss will play Kirby, a "Chicago reporter who survived a brutal assault only to find her reality shifting as she hunts down her attacker." As for Brenneman, she'll play Rachel, Kirby's "larger-than-life single mother."
The story will be based on Lauren Beukes' 2013 best-selling novel The Shining Girls with writer-creator Silka Luisa in charge of the adaptation for the small screen.
Deadline also notes that Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way will executive produce the show, too.
