Here’s everything we know about the series so far.

What is the plot of Pieces Of Her?

Pieces Of Her is set in a sleepy Georgia town where a random act of violence sets off an unexpected chain of events for 30-year-old Andy Oliver and her mother Laura, played by Collette. In a quest for answers, Andy sets off on a dangerous journey across America that draws her towards the dark, hidden heart of her family.

Laura, a seemingly devoted speech pathologist and mother to her disaffected daughter, at first appears to be “the perfect Southern woman”. However, Andy’s journey soon uncovers that there is more to her mother than meets the eye.

Aside from Collette, the remaining cast has yet to be announced.
