Garner currently stars in and produces the AppleTV+ adaptation of the bestseller.
During an interview with Weekly entertainment earlier this month, Garner shared how much she would have loved to play Hannah and how much effort she had gone through to land the part.
“I went for it,” she admitted. “And I stayed up all night writing letters, like all night, like watching the sunrise, just writing and rewriting letters and sending these letters. And the next night I did it again.’
The IMDB The show’s synopsis reads, “A woman forms an unexpected relationship with her 16-year-old stepdaughter while searching for the truth about why her husband has mysteriously disappeared.”
Jennifer’s husband on the series, Owen, is played by Game Of Thrones alum Nikolaj, and her teenage stepdaughter is played by Angourie Rice.
“I haven’t heard from Owen in 24 hours,” Hannah says of her husband, who goes missing and leaves a note asking her to protect her stepdaughter Bailey.
The suspenseful trailer for the series digs deeper into the mystery, with a man telling her “your husband isn’t who you think he is.”
The series also reunites Garner — who was seen on the set of the series last spring — with her Alias co-star and one of her real-life BFFs, Victor Garber.
“I may not know why your father did what he did, but I know who he is,” Hannah says to her stepdaughter.
“Why do you make him sound like a criminal mastermind,” Garner’s character asks someone as she investigates her husband’s disappearance.
Laura Dave created and edited the seven-part series with her Oscar-winning husband, Spotlight screenwriter Josh Singer.
Garner is co-producing the series with Reese Witherspoon and Lauren Neustadter for their production company Hello Sunshine.

“The show is really a love story between two women: a girl who doesn’t know how to have a mother, and a woman who doesn’t know how to be a mother,” the actress further told the outlet, Garner explained.
And they start off in an adversarial role with each other, and their lives get completely blown up in such a way that the stakes couldn’t be greater, that they have to start working together as a team, whether they like it or not. ‘
