Sally Field Cast in Emma Stone-Jonah Hill Netflix Series
Sally Field is returning to television.
The actress will recur in Netflix's Maniac, a dark comedy directed by True Detective's Cary Fukunaga. Starring Emma Stone and Jonah Hill, the 10-episode series hails from Paramount TV and Anonymous Content.
Based on the 2014 Norwegian series, Maniac is written by Patrick Somerville. The original centered on a mental patient at a psychiatric ward who escapes reality and lives in a fantasy world in his mind. Details about Field's character are being kept under wraps, as are many specifics about the project.
The role marks Field's first TV part since starring in ABC's Brothers & Sisters, for which she won an Emmy. She can currently be seen in Little Evil, a Netflix horror-comedy film.
