    The 10-episode series follows police detective Ralph Anderson (Ben Mendelsohn), as he sets out to investigate the mutilated body of 11-year-old Frankie Peterson found in the Georgia woods. The mysterious circumstances surrounding this horrifying crime leads Ralph, still grieving the recent death of his own son, to bring in unorthodox private investigator Holly Gibney (Cynthia Erivo), whose uncanny abilities he hopes will help explain the unexplainable.

    The cast includes Ben Mendelsohn, Cynthia Erivo, Jason Bateman, Bill Camp, Mare Winningham, Paddy Considine, Julianne Nicholson, Yul Vázquez, Jeremy Bobb and Marc Menchaca.

    The Outsider premieres January 12 on HBO.

      Bateman is a BEAST of a director. He's been working as an actor since he was just a kid. That's the best film school possible, as you can extrapolate from the end result from your experience on the set, day by day.

          I've never read The Outsider. So far this series has been good. Whoever the real culprit is has created a perfect murder.

                        id Love it if Terry lives in this tv show since he died shortly in the book. I was hoping for scenes of him, a suspected child killer, surviving in prison

                        A case like this happened in Tennessee in the early 1980s. A postman was arrested and convicted of rape even though the prosecutor had proof the postman was on his route at the time of the rape. Their case was built on the testimony of three eyewitnesses? it turned out the rape was committed by an identical stranger. They could have been twins.
