‘The Strangers’ Star Scott Speedman Joins Peacock Series “Teacup” from Producer James Wan

Based on Robert McCammon‘s Stinger, the upcoming Peacock series “Teacup” will be produced by James Wan, and Deadline reports that Scott Speedman (The Strangers) has joined the recently announced Yvonne Strahovski (“The Handmaid’s Tale”) in the series.

Speedman and Strahovski will be the leads of the series. Deadline notes, “Speedman will play James Chenoweth opposite Strahovski’s character Maggie Chenoweth.”

The series from Atomic Monster, UCP, and Ian McCulloch (“Yellowstone”) follows a disparate group of people on a ranch who must come together in the face of a mysterious threat.

Stinger takes place during a single twenty-four-hour period in Inferno, Texas. Inferno is a town in trouble, driven to the brink by racial tension, gang violence, and a collapsing economy. But things can always get worse, and they do so with astonishing speed.

Atomic Monster’s James Wan (The Conjuring Universe, Archive 81, Malignant), Michael Clear (Archive 81, Swamp Thing) and Rob Hackett (Archive 81, I Know What You Did Last Summer) will executive produce alongside director (101) / executive producer E.L. Katz (The Haunting of Bly Manor, Channel Zero), writer / executive producer Ian McCulloch (Yellowstone, Deputy, Chicago Fire) and executive producer / author Robert McCammon (Stinger).

“We are so excited for this adrenalized thriller about a group of people overcoming adversity, that’s both entertaining and emotional,” said Lisa Katz, President Scripted Content, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. “We know this upcoming drama will be in expert hands with James Wan, E.L. Katz, Ian McCulloch, our partners at UCP, and is sure to be a binge-worthy mystery for Peacock audiences.” 

“When you bring together James Wan, Ian McCulloch, E.L. Katz and a bestselling novel by Robert McCammon, you’ve got all the ingredients for an incredible series,” said Beatrice Springborn, President, UCP. “We’re ecstatic to partner with Peacock to bring this thrill ride of a show to their audience.”
