Dead Ringers is a modern retelling of the classic David Cronenberg thriller from 1988. The series follows the story of identical twins, Elliot and Beverly Mantle, both played by actor Rachel Weisz. The two are gynecologists who share everything, including their patients and their lovers. As their lives slowly unravel, the twins must confront their own individual demons and the consequences of their codependence.
The show was created by Alice Birch (writer in Lady Macbeth, Succession and Normal People) and produced by Annapurna Television.
This remake honors the original while also exploring modern themes, such as the ethics of medical practice, the pressures of fame, and the consequences of codependence. Dead Ringers promises to be a haunting and thought-provoking film that will captivate audiences.
