Amanda Peet takes on Anne Archer's role as Dan's wife, Beth Gallagher.

Other cast for the TV series includes Alyssa Jirrels as Dan's daughter Ellen Gallagher, Toby Huss as Mike Gerard, Reno Wilson as Detective Earl Brooker and Brian Goodman as Arthur Tomlinson.

Fans of the film might remember Jane Krakowski playing the babysitter in an early career role, although her TV series replacement has not been announced yet.

How is the TV series different to the film?

Fatal Attraction was released in 1987 and presented Alex as a deranged obsessive, while Dan got a sympathetic reception as a man who'd made a mistake and was facing a nightmare.

Obviously, the plot is problematic especially viewed through the lens of what we now know about coercive control and personality disorders.

Expect a much more nuanced look at where the blame lies, who was in the wrong, and how the character of Alex should be viewed.

A newly released trailer gives an idea of what the series will include, with many familiar moments still featured in the show.
