The PAN'S LABYRINTH and PACIFIC RIM director is shepherding a grisly period piece to HBO.
NUTSHELL STUDIES is described as a Hitchcockian drama about a 50s housewife obsessed with solving brutal crimes. The title is sourced from artist and photographer Corinne May Botz's The Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death,"an exploration of a collection of eighteen miniature crime scene models that were built in the 1940's and 50's by a progressive criminologist Frances Glessner Lee (1878 – 1962)."
Whether the show is explicitly about Glessner Lee's exploits, or just inspired by, remains unrevealed, but the Nutshell Studies dollhouses are certainly fascinating and worth a look at Botz's official site (I've posted some below, as well). Botz aimed to explore the incredible, finite detail found within the Studies, which include working shades and blinds, stereoscopes, mice living in the walls and more.
del Toro will direct and produce alongside novelist and SOUTHLAND writer Sara Gran.
