We love Katey Sagal. So, we are immediately onboard with her playing a twisted version of Lorreta Lynn combined with Misery’s Annie Wilkes. The new Blumhouse joint, Torn Hearts features two up-and-coming country musicians who meet a music icon – who might put an end to the duo’s careers as well as lives.
The synopsis for Torn Hearts goes like this:
Blumhouse Television and EPIX present the cautionary tale of a rise to stardom set in the iconic Nashville Country Music scene. Two friends, rising artists on the brink of a big break, will do just about anything to realize their dream – including a pilgrimage to the legendary and reclusive Harper Dutch’s (Golden Globe winner Katey Sagal) mansion in the hopes she’ll record a song with them. While their life-long idol seems intent to help, the visit devolves into a twisted series of mental and physical torment as the pair discover Harper – and each other – may have other motives. With no other choice and desperate to record a song, the duo must go to dangerous lengths to prove their dedication to their dream of becoming Nashville’s next country music stars.
Torn Hearts stars Katey Sagal, Abby Quinn, Alexxis Lemire with Joshua Leonard and Shiloh Fernandez in a Brea Grant film.
Torn Hearts arrives on digital beginning May 20.
