For the first time in her career, Renee Zellweger has a leading role in a television series. The actress, known from among others Bridget Jones’ Diary, will play in a new thriller series by Netflix.


According to The Hollywood Reporter , Zellweger will play the role of Anne in the thriller series What / If , which will consist of ten episodes. The series revolves around “accepted people who do unacceptable things”.

It is the intention that more series will follow after the first season. In this, a different story is discussed, which deals with the “influence of one decision on a whole life”. According to sources, the first season is about newly married people.

Mike Kelley, who previously devised the series Revenge , will write the series. Zellweger was shown on TV for the last time in A Taste for Killing from 1992, which was also her acting debut.
