Based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Renée Knight, “Disclaimer” follows acclaimed journalist Catherine Ravenscroft (Blanchett), who “built her reputation revealing the misdeeds and transgressions of others.” Per the logline, “When she receives a novel from an unknown author, she is horrified to realize she is now the main character in a story that exposes her darkest secrets. As Catherine races to uncover the writer’s true identity, she is forced to confront her past before it destroys both her own life and her relationships with her husband Robert (Sacha Baron Cohen) and their son Nicholas (Kodi Smit-McPhee).”

“Disclaimer” also stars Lesley Manville, Louis Partridge, Leila George and Hoyeon. The series is produced by Esperanto Filmoj and Anonymous Content. Cuarón executive produces alongside Esperanto Filmoj’s Gabriela Rodriguez and Anonymous Content’s David Levine, and Steve Golin. Author Knight is a co-executive producer.

Oscar winner Emmanuel Lubezki, who worked with Cuarón on “Gravity,” “Birdman” and “The Revenant,” serves as director of photography with Oscar nominee Bruno Delbonnel. The two are also EPs alongside Donald Sabourin and Carlos Morales. Oscar and Grammy winner Finneas O’Connell (“Barbie,” “No Time to Die”) is composing the score.

Blanchett is a two-time Oscar winner for “The Aviator” and “Blue Jasmine.” She was recently nominated for best actress for her work in “Tár.” Kline won the Academy Award in 1989 for best supporting actor in “A Fish Called Wanda.”

Cuarón’s last venture on television was the 2014 fantasy drama “Believe,” which he co-created with Mark Friedman.
