One Day She'll Darken - Leland Orser to Star in TNT Limited Series



Berlin Station‘s Leland Orser is set for a lead role opposite Chris Pine in One Day She’ll Darken, TNT’s limited drama series directed by Patty Jenkins.

Written by Sam Sheridan and inspired by the autobiography of Fauna Hodel, the series tells the story of Hodel, who was given away by her teenage birth mother to a black restroom attendant in a Nevada casino in 1949. As Fauna begins to investigate the secrets to her past, she follows a sinister trail that swirls ever closer to an infamous Hollywood gynecologist, Dr. George Hodel, a man involved in the darkest Hollywood debauchery and a suspect in the infamous “Black Dahlia” murder of Elizabeth Short in Los Angeles in 1947.

Orser will play Peter Sullivan, a Night Managing Editor for the LA Times, a survivor with his own little fiefdom, the type that works out of bars and shuns the office. Peter’s been in newspapers his whole life, and still loves it, although he’s been forced into extreme cynicism, high-functioning alcoholism, rampant black humor… and at times despair that no one else sees. Peter’s seen it all, nothing about human frailty or depravity truly surprises him anymore, but under the cynicism he still believes in what he’s doing, that the news has a vital role in society. Deep at his core, he carries some hope for the capital ‘T’ Truth—even though he’s seen it fail to change anything a million times.
