Based on a novel by Jon Krakaeuer, the series stars Andrew Garfield, Daisy Edgar-Jones, Sam Worthington, Wyatt Russell, and Gil Birmingham.

Of course, Isabel is happy about it.

She announced the news on social media recently.

She tweeted, “For my first-ever TV Job, I’m directing Andrew Garfield and Daisy Edgar-Jones in a limited series.”
