Ali Skovbye (Breakthrough) and Roan Curtis (The Magicians) have been cast in Netflix’s upcoming drama series Firefly Lane starring Katherine Heigl.
Based from the bestselling novel by Kristin Hannah, Maggie Friedman is executive producing, and acting as the showrunner and writer of the series.
Firefly Lane follows the story of Kate and Tully’s enduring friendship from their teen years through their 40s — as they weather career ups and downs, love triangles, marriage and divorce, and countless dramas along with way. Throughout their lives, the one constant they have is each other: partners in crime, platonic soulmates, always up for their next adventure.
Curtis will portray teenager Kate while Skovbye will play Tully’s teenage counterpart in the 1970s.
