Daisy Ridley is teaming up with Raelle Tucker, an alumna of “Jessica Jones” and “True Blood,” on her next project. The “Star Wars” actress will topline and exec produce “The Better Liar,” a drama series in development at Amazon that’s written by Tucker. Deadline broke the news.
An adaptation of Tanen Jones’ book of the same name, “The Better Liar” tells the story of a woman who “hires a lookalike in an effort to conceal her sister’s death and claim their shared inheritance,” but “her deception exposes a web of dangerous secrets,” per the source.
Ridley premiered her latest film, “Sometimes I Think About Dying,” at Sundance Film Festival in January. Directed by Rachel Lambert, the drama follows a woman who starts dating a coworker.
Tucker just served as showrunner on “The Power,” Amazon’s upcoming thriller based on Naomi Alderman’s novel about teenage girls who develop the power to electrocute people at will.
