Mahershala Ali to Star in New Hulu Limited Series THE PLOT

Mahershala Ali to Star in New Hulu Limited Series THE PLOT
Oscar winner Mahershala Ali ("Blade", "Green Book") has signed on to star in and executive produce the upcoming eight-episode limited series "The Plot" for Disney's Onyx Collective. The series, which has been described as a "gripping cat and mouse story", will stream on Hulu in the U.S., Star+ in Latin America and Disney+ in all other territories.

The miniseries is an adaptation of the bestselling novel of the same name by Jean Hanff Korelitz. Abby Ajayi ("Inventing Anna", "How to Get Away With Murder") will adapt the book, and also serve as executive producer and showrunner. Korelitz also wrote the novel "You Should Have Known", which was adapted into HBO's "The Undoing" starring Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant.

"The Plot" follows struggling author Jake (Ali), who is primed to take advantage of any opportunity that might help revive his career. When a once in a lifetime opportunity presents itself, Jake commits an act of literary theft that changes his life irrevocably. Now, someone knows his secret and is threatening him…and we will see just how far Jake will go to protect himself and the life he's built.

Onyx Collective is a new content brand under Disney General Entertainment Content designed to curate a slate of premium programming by artists of color and underrepresented voices.
