Forever, Interrupted: Laura Dern & Margaret Qualley to Lead Netflix & A24 Miniseries


According to Deadline, Oscar winner Laura Dern and Emmy nominee Margaret Qualley will lead the cast of Netflix and A24‘s upcoming limited series Forever, Interrupted, based on bestselling author Taylor Jenkins Reid’s 2013 debut novel. Both Dern and Qualley are also set as executive producers along with Reid.

In the series, Elsie (Qualley) and Ben’s whirlwind romance is electric – within months they’re married and living happily ever after – when Ben’s unexpected death forces Elsie to come face to face with Susan (Dern), the mother-in-law who doesn’t know that she exists,” reads the logline. “Told through a dual timeline, the series recounts Elsie and Ben’s once-in-a-lifetime love, intercut with Elsie and Susan’s unexpected journey as their at first turbulent connection ultimately brings both women cathartic new beginnings.”

Who’s involved in Forever, Interrupted?

Forever, Interrupted will be written by Yellowjackets’ Julia Bicknell, who has also been tapped to serve as the showrunner. Netflix successfully won the rights to the project in a competitive bidding war against multiple buyers. Executive producers are Jessica Rhoades, Alison Mo, Brad Mendelsohn, Jayme Lemons, and Brett Hedblom. It is a production by A24.

This marks Reid’s second collaboration with the streamer, as they’re also currently working together in the highly-anticipated film adaptation of Reid’s popular novel The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, which will be directed by The Acolyte showrunner Leslye Headland. The upcoming series will also reunite Dern and Qualley with Netflix, following their critically-acclaimed performances in the 2019 film Marriage Story, and the Maid series, respectively. The Jurassic Park alum was most recently seen in the Apple TV+ dramedy Palm Royale, which was led by Kristen Wiig. Meanwhile, Qualley will be starring opposite Emma Stone this June in Yorgos Lanthimos’ upcoming anthology movie Kinds of Kindness.
