To expand its line of psychological thrillers, Netflix has acquired the rights to produce The Last Mrs. Parrish, a female-driven psychological thriller based on Liv Constantine’s best-selling novel of the same name and telling the story of a twisted con artist.
The film is still looking for a director. Still, the screenplay for The Last Mrs. Parrish will be written by Lisa Rubin. She previously worked with Netflix on the psychosexual thriller Gypsy, starring Naomi Watts.
The Last Mrs. Parrish was previously announced as an Amazon series, but that project has been canceled.
Margaret Chernin, Lynne Constantine, and Valerie Constantine are the executive producers of The Last Mrs. Parrish. Producers include Liza Chasin of 3dot Productions as part of her global deal with Netflix and Molly Sims of Something Happy Productions. Below is everything we know about the Netflix series The Last Mrs. Parrish.
What is the plot of The Last Mrs. Parrish?
As mentioned above, Netflix’s The Last Mrs. Parrish is based on Liv Constantine’s best-selling book of the same name, published in 2017. It was selected by Reese Witherspoon’s book club and has sold over half a million copies and been published in over 30 countries. Here’s a summary of the book’s story:
Amber Patterson is fed up. She’s tired of being a stranger, a simple, invisible woman who can’t be seen. She deserves better: a life with money and power that blue-eyed blonde goddess Daphne Parrish takes for granted.
To everyone in the elegant town of Bishops Harbor, Connecticut, Daphne, a socialite and philanthropist, and her husband Jackson, a real estate mogul, is a couple straight out of a fairy tale.
Amber’s jealousy could eat her alive if she didn’t have a plan. Amber uses Daphne’s compassion and attention to interfere in the family’s life – the first step in a careful plan to undermine them. Soon Amber becomes Daphne’s closest confidante, traveling to Europe with the Parrishes and their beautiful daughters and growing closer to Jackson. But a body from her past could jeopardize everything Amber has worked for, and when it’s discovered, her well-planned plan could fall apart.
