Facebook has given green light for Limetown, a series based on a podcast of the same name about a group of disappeared people. Jessica Biel will play the leading role and will produce the show.
Limetown follows a radio journalist who tries to find out what has happened to three hundred people who have disappeared from a neuroscientific research institute.
The podcast was downloaded ten million times and gained a number 1 rating in the podcast hit list of iTunes. A new series of the podcast will be released at the end of October.
It is the second television main role for Biel in a short time. The 36-year-old actress can also be seen in the mystery series The Sinner and for her role as a murderer, Cora Tannetti was nominated for an Emmy. She was also involved in this show as a producer.
