Harrison Ford to Star in ‘The Staircase’ Series, Based on Michael Peterson Case

Harrison Ford is in talks to star in his very first regular television series role!

The 77-year-old actor is attached to star in and executive produce a series adaptation of the docuseries The Staircase, which is about the Michael Peterson murder trial in 2001.

Peterson was accused of murdering his wife. He originally claimed that his wife fell down the stairs of their home, but it was suspected by police that he staged the scene to look like an accident after bludgeoning her to death.

While Ford has made guest appearances on TV shows before, he has never been a series regular.

Antonio Campos, who directed many episodes of USA’s The Sinner, is attached to write and direct the limited series, according to Variety. The project is being shopped to networks and streaming services.
