The Sopranos' Ilene Landress will produce the series for U.S. network HBO, while Todd Haynes and Jon Raymond are helming the script."

Sounds promising.

I'd rather see Carol Burnett's "Mildred Fierce," with Harvey Korman as "Monty Slick."

Will she be doing the old Jack Carson part?

I wonder if this will be a remake of the Joan Crawford movie or a faithful adaptation of Cain's book, which is very interesting and very different from the movie, with no murder and hardly a crime/mystery novel at all--more a sort of domestic drama about a self-made woman and her ungrateful daughter.

I agree, it's a NICE film with Joan Crawford but it's not really a murder story at all - I was surprised that they noted it was a Cain book!
Good film though.
