TONI COLLETTE JOINS
COLIN FIRTH IN STAIRCASE
A few months ago we heard that Colin Firth will lead the mini series THE STAIRCASE at HBO Max and now it has been revealed that Toni
Collette will take the female lead as his wife, a corporate executive, mother, stepmother of five and wife of Michael Peterson, played by Firth. Eight episodes of the mini series will follow the life of Michael Peterson, his sprawling North Carolina family and the suspicious death of his wife, Kathleen. As 'Deadline' reports, it is based on the docuseries and various books and reports on the case. Michael Peterson was convicted of murdering Kathleen in 2001, a charge that was reduced to manslaughter in 2017 and Peterson released from prison. He had claimed his wife died after falling down the stairs at their home after consuming alcohol and Valium, but an autopsy
concluded she died from multiple injuries, including blows to the back of her head with a blunt object. Antonio Campos is executive producing the new mini series.
