Actress Kate Winslet, the two-time Emmy winning actress behind Mare of Easttown, will adapt and star in an HBO limited series of TRUST by Riverhead author and Pulitzer Prize finalist, Hernan Diaz.

TRUST follows Benjamin and Helen Rask, respective Wall Street tycoon and wealthy aristocrat heiress, and their rise to the top during the Roaring Twenties. Together, they have risen to the very top of a world of seemingly endless wealth—all as a decade of excess and speculation draws to an end. But at what cost have they acquired their immense fortune? This is the mystery at the center of Bonds, a successful 1937 novel that all of New York seems to have read. Yet there are other versions of this tale of privilege and deceit.

HBO has purchased the screen rights to TRUST in a competitive deal. Winslet will star and produce the adaptation of the best-selling, critically acclaimed novel about the tycoon couple and the narrative puzzle behind their wealth. Hernan Diaz will executive produce the project. The announcement was covered in Deadline, The Hollywood Reporter, Variety, PureWow, AV Club, Town & Magazine, and more.
