Netflix’s ‘What/If’ Trailer Clarifies Renee Zellweger’s Indecent Proposal With A Flying Arrow

Netflix
isn’t messing around with their quest to satisfy all audiences,
and if you love Revenge-styled, pulpy dramas, What/If might be your
next soapy binge. Whereas the series’ first teaser only hinted at
some sort of sexy
chess game
, this first trailer lays out many of the stakes
involved in whatever the hell Renee Zellweger doing to this
story’s seemingly happy couples, one of which has fallen prey, in
a very Corleone sort-of way, to an offer they can’t refuse. Add a
barely-contained Zellweger unleashing an arrow that narrowly misses
Jane Levy’s head, and we have drama.

The series will focus on collateral damage wrought after one
fateful decision, and Zellweger’s Anne makes her most blatant
objective clear. She’s going to finance a big project for Lisa
(Jane Levy) but will only do so for one night with her husband,
Sean (Blake Jenner). This seems simple enough on its face, but
having watched four episodes of the series, I can attest to there
being more to the story than the Indecent Proposal throwback at
hand. Again, there’s tons of Revenge flavor to this project,
given that it was also created by Mike Kelley, and Gabriel Mann
(who was arguably the most delightful part of that psychological
thriller-soap starring Emily VanCamp) pops up in the first
episode.

From the What/If synopsis:

Neo-noir social thriller What/Ifexplores the ripple effects of
what happens when acceptable people start doing unacceptable
things. The season focuses on a mysterious woman’s lucrative but
dubious offer to a cash-strapped pair of San Francisco
newlyweds.

What/If also stars Westworld‘s Louis Herthum in a mysterious
role not entirely unlike what he’s doing for HBO. Samantha Ware,
Keith Powers, Daniella Pineda, Juan Castano, John Clarence Stewart,
and Dave Annable fill out the ensemble cast, and the series will
stream on May 24.
