The anthology will also star Sienna Miller, Michelle Dockery and Rupert Friend.
David E. Kelley, writer and producer, and Melissa James Gibson, Canadian born playwright will serve as writers, executive producers and showrunners of the web series along with S.J. Clarkson. Clarkson reportedly will also direct the hour-long episodes of the anthology.
