Halsey is set to make her acting debut in an upcoming series, called “The Player’s Table,” which is based on Jessica Goodman‘s novel “They Wish They Were Us.”
Halsey will star alongside Sydney Sweeney, who is known for “Sharp Objects,” “The Handmaid’s Tale” and “Euphoria.”
The series revolves around an elite Long Island prep school and a secret society dubbed the Players. Sweeney will play Jill Newman, a senior who tries to uncover the mystery behind the death of her best friend Shaila, who was allegedly killed by her boyfriend Graham three years prior.
Halsey will co-star as Graham’s sister, Rachel Calloway, a former Player who’s convinced her brother is innocent.
Sweeney’s newly-lanuched Fifty-Fifty Films will executive produce the show along with Jean-Marc Vallée and Nathan Ross‘ Crazyrose and Endeavor Content.
Halsey and Sweeney notably worked together previously when the actress appeared in the singer’s video for “Graveyard,” off her 2020 album Manic.
