Rosemarie DeWitt Joins Netflix Limited Series ‘Untamed’

EXCLUSIVE: Rosemarie DeWitt (La La Land, The Staircase) is set to star opposite Eric Bana in Netflix‘s limited series Untamed, from Warner Bros. Television and studio-based John Wells Productions.

Written by Mark L. Smith and Elle Smith, Untamed is a character-driven mystery-thriller that follows Kyle Turner (Bana), a special agent for the National Parks Service who works to enforce human law in nature’s vast wilderness. The investigation of a brutal death sends Turner on a collision course with the dark secrets within the park, and in his own past.
