Based on the 2003 book of the same name by Jon Krakauer, it’s been adapted by Oscar-winning American screenwriter Lance Dustin Black and is directed by British filmmaker David Mackenzie, whose credits include Hell Or High water.
The series, set among the Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-day Saints in Utah, follows Garfield’s devout detective as he investigates the brutal murder of a young Mormon woman, Brenda Lafferty, played by Edgar-Jones.
Sam plays the role Ron Lafferty, a self-professed prophet, who along with his brother Dan Lafferty are responsible for her brutal murder.
The investigation leads Garfield to encounter the esteemed Utah family who are characterized by their fundamentalist LDS faith and deep mistrust of the government.
The investigation causes Garfield’s character to begin to doubt his own beliefs and his church’s teachings as he learns more about the murderer.
The story is a passion project for Lance Black who won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for 2008 biopic Milk.
Lara and Sam tied the knot in December 2014 in a low-key ceremony, saying ‘I do’ in front of just 10 people at a private house in Melbourne.
At the time Lara was six months pregnant with their son Rocket.
‘It was very intimate, we just popped in to Melbourne where Sam’s family is from. It was just our families, less than 10 people,’ she told KIISFM’s The Kyle and Jackie O show.
‘We wrote the whole celebration, we wrote all our vows. I was pregnant as well.’
Describing her wedding-day look, Lara added: ‘It was super chilled. Just before the wedding I was in London, it was really cold at the time and finding a dress at six months pregnant was difficult.
‘I found something at Louis Vuitton, it was white.’
The couple share three children – Rocket, six, Racer, four, and River, one.
