Amazon Announces Premiere Date for Limited Series 'Dead Ringers' Starring Rachel Weisz

Amazon has today announced the premiere date for its upcoming original limited series Dead Ringers starring Rachel Weisz.

All six episodes of the limited series will be available on Friday, April 21.

A modern take on David Cronenberg's 1988 feature film, Elliot and Beverly Mantle (both played by Weisz) are twins who share everything: drugs, lovers, and an unapologetic desire to do whatever it takes - including pushing the boundaries of medical ethics - in an effort to challenge antiquated practices and bring women's health care to the forefront. 

In addition to Weisz, the series stars Britne Oldford, Poppy Liu, Michael Chernus, Jennifer Ehle and Emily Meade.

Alice Birch created the series. She executive produces with Weisz, Stacy O'Neil, Sue Naegle, Sean Durkin, Ali Krug, Erica Kay, Anne Carey, Polly Stokes, James G. Robinson, David Robinson, Barbara Wall and director Sean Durkin. Amazon Studios, Annapurna Television, Astral Projection and Morgan Creek Entertainment produce.
