Quote from Co-Creators David E. Kelley and Melissa James Gibson:
“Sex. Power. Privilege. Based on Sarah’s addictive book, the show tackles entitlement, truth and the boundaries of consent. It’s been a joy to partner with Netflix on this and see S.J. bring it to such a rich and nuanced life.”
Quote from Star Sienna Miller:
“I was a huge fan of the book and of my character Sophie. She is multi-faceted and facing the consequences of the decisions she has made in her life of privilege, that are catching up with her. I loved the arc and journey she embarks on and was thrilled to be part of such a talented cast and crew.”
