The preview shows Lou (Shipka) grow closer to the demanding and abusive Joyce (Kruger) following the death of Joyce's assistant. Lou proves to be more devious than she seems.

"When Lou starts her internship for Joyce, she seems like a naïve Hollywood newcomer. In truth, Lou has been obsessed with Joyce for a long time and will do anything to get close to her... even kill," an official description reads.

Swimming with Sharks is a reboot of the 1994 dark comedy film of the same name, which was written and directed by George Huang and stars Kevin Spacey and Frank Whaley.

Donald Sutherland, Thomas Dekker, Finn Jones, Erika Alexander, Ross Butler and Gerardo Celasco also star in the Roku series.
