What’s the show about?

Poised somewhere between crime, thriller and horror, Sharp Objects promises to shock and exhilarate fans in equal measure.

Young, disturbed journalist Camille Preaker (played by Amy Adams) is sent by her boss to cover a strange murder in her Missouri home town, Wind Gap. Staying with her wealthy mother and sister, Camille can feel herself losing her grasp on reality.

Bit by bit, Camille uncovers truths about the distressing demise of a number of young girls, each of whom were strangled and had teeth removed. But can Camille survive the nightmarish ordeal, in light of her own psychiatric history? What will she do when she eventually discovers the truth? And just how will she react when she finds out the true circumstances of her sister’s death?

Tune in to Sky Atlantic to find out.
