Paramount+ calls the series "a deep-dive reimagining of the classic psychosexual thriller and '80s cultural touchstone." The press release adds, "The new series will explore fatal attraction and the timeless themes of marriage and infidelity, through the lens of modern attitudes towards strong women, personality disorders and coercive control."

Alexandra Cunningham writes and showruns Fatal Attraction. Kevin J. Hynes shares co-story credit and also executive produces with Cunningham, Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey.

The streaming service has not announced casting of Dan, his family or when they expect to film and air the series.

Caplan previously appeared in series Truth Be Told, Inside Job and Castle Rock where she played Misery character Annie Wilkes.
