Katherine Heigl to star in Netflix’s ‘Firefly Lane’ adaptation

‘Suits’ star actress Katherine Heigl is joining Netflix’ community of cast actors with the streaming giant’s adaptation of ‘Firefly Lane’. Heigl will not only work in front of the camera, but also labor behind-the-scenes acting out as an executive producer alongside Maggie Friedman, Stephanie German and Lee Rose.

On the small screen, Katherine is assigned the role Tully Hart, one of the series lead characters. Tully is described as magnetic, ambitious and fiercely loyal – a force of nature. The adaptation revolves around Tully and Kate, who meet as young girls and become inseparable and best friends throughout 30 years of ups and downs, successes and failures, depression and disappointments. When an unthinkable betrayal breaks them apart, the two women go their separate ways, and it’s unclear whether they will ever be able to reconcile.

‘UnReal’ director Peter O’Fallon is directing and at the same executive producing the first episode of the series. Original author Kristin Hannah will serve as co-executive producer, while Maggie pens down the script doubling as a showrunner.

‘Firefly Lane’ joins the myriad of developing series coming on the streaming service, following recent announcements that long-running shows are leaving the platform, including the all-time favorite series ‘Friends’.
