New CBS All Access drama Interrogation from Fabrik Entertainment has signed up Vincent D’Onofrio (Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Daredevil) in a recurring role opposite Kyle Gallner.
Co-created by Swedish writer-producer Anders Weidemann and John Mankiewicz, Interrogation is a true-crime drama series in which the viewer becomes the detective. It’s based on a true story that spanned more than 30 years, in which a young man (Gallner) was charged and convicted of brutally murdering his mother. Each episode is structured around an interrogation. Since the episodes are made to be watched in any order, the audience will jump back and forth in time, witnessing this man’s story unfold in multiple timelines — played at all ages by Gallner. The season finale will be released at a later date.
D’Onofrio plays an Internal Affairs officer who ends up becoming Gallner’s character’s biggest ally, an experience that calls his faith in the criminal justice system into question.
Peter Sarsgaard, Kodi Smit-McPhee and David Strathairn also star, alongside Frank Whaley who also recurs.
Weidemann and Mankiewicz are executive producing the show alongside Fabrik Entertainment’s Henrik Bastin and Melissa Aouate, for CBS TV Studios.
