Sideways and The Descendants director Alexander Payne is directing the crime drama Landscapers for HBO and Sky based on script by Ed Sinclair, the Oscar-winning actress' husband. The four-part limited series tells the story of killers Susan and Christopher Edwards, and how they cast themselves as Hollywood heroes in their own story. Colman will play Susan Edwards. According to Deadline, "the pair, a mild-mannered couple from Mansfield in the UK, killed Susan’s parents and buried them in their back garden. The crime remained undiscovered for over a decade. It is a blackly comic true-crime drama based on extensive research, hours of interviews and direct access to the accused, who have always protested their innocence of murder. Patricia and William Wycherley were shot dead at their home in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, on the May Day Bank Holiday weekend in 1998. Susan and Christopher Edwards subsequently cleared out their bank accounts and spent the money on things including Hollywood memorabilia such as a letter autographed by Sergeant York star Gary Cooper."
