DEADLINE – Starz has given a series order to drama The Venery of Samantha Bird, starring Katherine Langford (Knives Out, 13 Reasons Why) in the title role.

Created by Anna Moriarty, the eight-episode series revolves around Langford’s Samantha Bird, who, while visiting family in New England, Samantha Bird reconnects with her childhood sweetheart and falls headlong into a seemingly perfect storybook romance. But underneath their fever dream lurks a more unsettling interpretation of this affair. The series is described as a haunting portrayal of addictive love and the repercussions that a relationship has on the families in a small New England town.

Moriarty also serves as executive producer. Salvatore Stabile (Waco) is showrunner and executive producer. Jessica Rhoades (Station Eleven, Sharp Objects) executive produces through her Pacesetter Productions shingle, with Rachel Polan serving as co-executive producer. Jessica Yu (Fosse/Verdon, Billions) is consulting producer.

“The Venery of Samantha Bird is the perfect complement to our slate of provocative, immersive storytelling that leans into the female gaze,” said Kathryn Busby, President of Original Programming, Starz. “Katherine is an incredible talent who will bring this modern romance of addictive love to life.”

Langford earned critical acclaim as Hannah Baker in Netflix’s original series 13 Reasons Why, a role for which she received a Golden Globe nomination. She also had a key role in Lionsgate mystery thriller Knives Out. Other credits include the lead in Cursed. She currently stars in the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) six-part Australian crime drama, Savage River. She’s repped by WME, Brillstein Entertainment Partners and Independent Management Company in Australia.

Karen Bailey, Executive Vice President of Original Programming, is the executive overseeing The Venery of Samantha Bird for Starz, and Max Elins is overseeing for Lionsgate. The series is produced by Lionsgate Television and Paramount Television Studios.

RADIOTIMES.COM – After breaking out in Netflix teen hit 13 Reasons Why, Katherine Langford is back on the streamer for another project – and this time, she’s really taking centre stage.

In Arthurian retelling Cursed, Langford plays future Lady of the Lake Nimue, a magical warrior who leads a revolution against a religious cult – and according to the actor, despite the two dramas differences returning to Netflix was a bit of a homecoming.

13 Reasons Why was my first role and something that I’m so grateful for,” Langford told RadioTimes.com. “And obviously to have that great relationship with Netflix is such a happy coincidence, as they’re the ones who are also responsible for this story as well.”

However, Langford admitted that leaving 13 Reasons Why in its second season had given her some welcome breathing room before recommitting to another lead role, adding that she felt she’d grown and changed as an actor since saying goodbye to Hannah Baker.

I think it also feels nice to have had that breathing room, of closing that chapter two or three years ago, and having the space to do a couple of other roles before stepping into another huge commitment like this series,” Langford explained.

I feel like I’ve grown a lot more as a person, and hopefully more as an actor, and that’s something that I hope I can continue to do.”

Certainly, she seems to think that Cursed – which retells a forgotten chapter of Arthurian myth complete with new versions of Merlin and Arthur – is a chance to push herself even further.

I think this particular project is so special to me,” she told us, “in the sense that it really feels like it’s different to anything I’ve done before.

And it also feels like I’m telling a different story, in the sense that…it’s kind of matured and grown in a way, which I feel I also have as a person.

We really see Nimue go from being this young woman to an adult, really coming into her womanhood. And I think that’s a story or a journey that often isn’t told, or we don’t see much of it.”

Sounds like Langford’s fans might see a very different side of her in her new lead role – and not just because she’s leaving high school behind for Camelot.

Cursed streams on Netflix on Friday 17th July.

Katherine Langford is set to slay – Excalibur and all – in this summer’s NetflixTV hit, Cursed. But as GLAMOUR’s Josh Smith finds out, the new L’Oréal Paris global ambassador has had to put in the work to truly feel worth it…

Katherine Langford rose to fame after starring as Hannah, a teenager who took her own life in 13 Reasons Why. The Netflix show didn’t just ignite her career and garner her a Golden Globe nomination, it ignited a new conversation around mental health.

Via the power of Zoom, Katherine sits before me in the living room of her secret European quarantine hideaway after finding herself between her homeland of Australia and the US (Katherine is rightly private about her whereabouts, with a 16.6-million-strong Instagram following) and just after the fourth and final season of 13 Reasons Why has been released. Her look is as relaxed as she is warm; she’s wearing an oversized shirt, with her hair down and just the slightest hint of makeup. She tells me that starting a mental health conversation at such an early part of her career is one of the things she is most proud of, even if at times, it has cost her own emotional health.

I think early on, just having roles that resonate with mental ill-health, was so important. But I’m quite an empathetic person,” the 24-year-old tells me. “I’ve learnt to monitor doing it now because sometimes if I hear someone’s story and they’re crying, I’ll cry with them because I feel that pain. Hearing other people’s stories makes me realise how human we all are. I felt and went through so many things growing up, but you realise all of us have similar reactions as we get older.”

How has she learnt to look after her own mental health I wonder, especially given the swirling conversations around her work? “It’s a journey, babe! I feel like you’re always looking after it and you’re always learning,” she replies. For many of us, the events of recent months have turned that journey into a rollercoaster, and Katherine is no different.

Despite having a new set of plants to “sing and talk to” – including a ficus tree named Eric, after Eric Clapton – Katherine has spent the vast majority of lockdown alone. “I was in need of slowing down, but I went through a couple of ups and downs because it was really overwhelming,” she confides. “At times you feel quite lonely. I just really wanted a hug. I miss hugs.”
