Additionally, Weeds alumna Elizabeth Perkins will guest star on the upcoming new season of HBO’s Larry David comedy series Curb Your Enthusiasm.
Written by Marti Noxon based on the book by Gillian Flynn and directed by Jean Marc Vallée, Sharp Objects centers on reporter Camille Preaker (Amy Adams). Fresh from a brief stay at a psychiatric hospital, Camille must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. Trying to put together a psychological puzzle from her past, Camille finds herself identifying with the young victims a bit too closely.
Elizabeth Perkins will play Jackie, the local gossip and renowned alcoholic, trashy, fun, big hair, big makeup. She knows she’s a “backwoods Barbie” and has a sense of humor about it.

Also executive producing are Jason Blum, Charles Layton, Jessica Rhoades for Blumhouse Television and Nathan Ross.
