5 reasons to watch 'Sharp Objects' on TV tonight

‘Sharp Objects’: 5 Things To Know About Amy Adams’ Seriously Twisted TV Show

The Amy Adams-starring adaptation of Gillian Flynn's well-received debut novel of the same name follows the story of a troubled crime reporter Camille Preaker returning to her hometown to cover a series of horrific murders that hit close to home.

"Big Little Lies" director Jean-Marc Valee is also at the helm of "Sharp Objects", and though Amy was having discussions with him first, she was pleased the filmmaker worked on the other show first. The dark, 21st century Southern Gothic as The Atlantic called it, focuses on the investigation as well as the main character's return to her hometown after time in a psychiatric hospital and the demons of her past.

At the ATX Television Festival earlier this year, author of the novel Gillian Flynn spoke about how the book came to be. The trailer, which you can watch below, is fantastic. The premiere is going to last a little longer than an hour, ending at 10:03 p.m.

You can catch our review on site tomorrow too. However, as with the likes of Westworld and Game of Thrones, Sharp Objects was simulcast on HBO in the U.S. and Sky Atlantic in the United Kingdom, meaning UK audiences could watch the miniseries's first episode at 2am BST. As Camille tries to come to terms with her past, she finds herself identifying with the young victims.

"You know, of course I respect if somebody needs to be quiet or have silence, but for the most part I like to laugh".

After the success of Gone Girl, Gillian Flynn's Sharp Objects has been adapted into a mini-series by HBO, and it's set to premiere today. HBO officially greenlit the eight-episode miniseries in 2016, and it has begun airing on HBO. One, he believes the murders are connected; and two, he senses that Camille isn't facing her past. Based on the first episode, it's clear she isn't the typical heroine. Camille brings back some serious emotional baggage and physical scars with her, which stem from her complicated relationship with her mother, Adora. "Tormented by her past and seeking refuge through alcohol, Camille manages to join Detective Richard Willis and Chief of Police Vickery in following leads around town that might shed light on the fate of the two missing girls".

Here's a preview for tonight.
