Dakota Johnson is set to star in a new series.
The 31-year-old Fifty Shades actress will co-executive produce and co-star alongside Riley Keough in an upcoming series based on Bexy Cameron‘s upcoming memoir Cult Following, Deadline reported Thursday (October 29).
Here’s a plot summary, based on Bexy Cameron‘s memoir: “the story follows her as she recounts her upbringing in the notorious cult Children of God. After emancipating herself at the age of 16 and building a life away from the cult, as an adult Cameron (Johnson) embarks on a road trip with a close friend (Keough) to investigate and document contemporary cults existing in America today. Two young women set out on the ‘adventure’ of a lifetime and Cameron’s emphatic, raw and at times incredibly funny experience on the road runs parallel to her examining and processing the psychology and trauma of her own childhood being raised in a cult. It’s a journey of meltdowns, meth cooks, monks, Jesus freaks, soap-making Armageddonists, surveillance vans, ex-Apple employees and finally, Cameron’s confrontation of her parents and ultimately herself.”
“It has been a dream of ours since we launched TeaTime to collaborate with Riley and Gina at Felix Culpa. We are beyond thrilled to join forces and friendship to bring Bexy’s remarkable story to the screen. Alongside Platform One, we look forward to adding the final top notch collaborators to the team,” Dakota and production partner Ro Donnelly said in a statement.
The memoir will be published on July 8, 2021.
At the same time, Dakota is hard at work filming for this upcoming production.
