William Sadler, Happy Anderson, and Adia Gill have been officially announced as the latest addition to Full Circle, an HBO Max limited series by Steven Soderbergh. Sadler, Anderson, and Gill join previously-announced cast members Jharrel Jerome, Jim Gaffigan, Timothy Olyphant, Dennis Quaid, Zazie Beetz, Claire Danes, CCH Pounder, and Sheyi Cole, among others.
Slated for release in 2023, Full Circle on HBO Max will follow the police investigation into a botched kidnapping that grows into a complicated web as investigators uncover “long-held secrets connecting multiple characters and cultures in present-day New York City,” per the show description. The series is the latest work of director Steven Soderbergh, whose recent projects include Is This Black Enough For You?!? (2022), The Exiles (2022), and Finding Magic Mike (2021).
Full Circle also sees Soderbergh joining forces with writer Ed Solomon, who was behind famous titles like Men in Black (1997), Charlie’s Angels (2000), and Now You See Me (2013). Soderbergh and Solomon also serve as executive producers for the HBO Max limited series, along with Casey Silver, who joined Soderbergh and Solomon on the HBO Max film No Sudden Move (2021), according to Deadline.
