At Berkeley, Rachel struggles to balance her morals with capitalism, while a post-prison Brad tries to return to society as a reformed man.”

* Peacock is developing a TV series based on the 1996 movie Fear, which starred Reese Witherspoon and Mark Wahlberg, our sister site Variety reports. The project will be written by Jessica Goldberg (The Path) and the logline reads as follows: “This modern series reinvention finds two young lovers in a psychological game of cat and mouse — but who’s the cat, and who’s the mouse? When David and Nicole first meet in Seattle, it feels like an epic, once-in-a-lifetime romance — but soon it becomes clear that the seemingly perfect couple is anything but. Told from conflicting points of view, the series wrestles with personal demons, hidden agendas and reframes the ‘he said she said’ convention into a twist-filled suspense story about toxic relationships.”
