Katherine Heigl to Star in Netflix’s 10-Episode Firefly Lane Adaptation. The Grey’s Anatomy vet has signed on to star in and exec-produce Netflix’s 10-episode series adaptation of Kristin Hannah’s best-selling book, TVLine has learned exclusively.
Firefly Lane centers on two inseparable best friends and tracks their enduring, complicated bond over the course of four decades.
Heigl will play Tully Hart, a magnetic, ambitious, reckless and fiercely loyal force of nature. Still bearing the scars of a traumatic childhood, Tully is, per the official character description, “dogged by inner loneliness, even as she goes on to fabulous fame and fortune as a journalist and talk show host. Her saving grace is her best friend and soulmate, Kate (not yet cast), with whom she shares an unshakable bond, over the course of four tumultuous decades.”
