Winona Ryder and David Harbour have been cast as leads in Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer’s untitled supernatural series for Netflix, the premium streaming service announced on Monday.
The eight-episode series is set in the 1980s and is about a mystery surrounding a boy who vanishes and the ever-expanding government conspiracy that unravels in its wake.
Ryder will play the boy’s single mother while Harbour will play the town’s chief of police, tasked with investigating the disappearance.
Karl Gajdusek has also come on board as executive producer and showrunner.
The Duffer Brothers (“Wayward Pines”) will serve as executive producers, along with Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen via their 21 Laps Entertainment banner. The show, previously working under the title “Montauk,” is a Netflix production.
Ryder will next be seen on HBO miniseries “Show Me a Hero” opposite Oscar Isaac. She is represented by Gersh and Anonymous Content.
Harbour, last seen on NBC’s “State of Affairs” opposite Katherine Heigl, is repped by ICM and Authentic.
