The Staircase: Harrison Ford to star in series adaptation

Variety is reporting that Oscar nominee Harrison Ford (Witness, Star Wars franchise, Indiana Jones franchise) will star in The Staircase for Annapurna Television, a scripted series adaptation of the docuseries that centered on the trial of American novelist Michael Peterson.

Peterson was accused of murdering his wife in 2001 who Peterson claimed died after falling down the stairs at their home. The police suspected Peterson bludgeoned his wife to death and then tried to make it look like an accident.
