Firefly Lane is an upcoming Netflix show based on the bestselling novel “Firefly Lane” by Kristin Hannah. Netflix’s official description perhaps sums it up the best: “Three decades. Two friends. One hell of a story.” This drama genre series is developed by Maggie Friedman and produced by Maggie Friedman Stephanie Germain, Katherine Heigl and Lee Rose.
The cast of Firefly Lane
Firefly Lane stars in Grey’s Anatomy Dr. Izzie Stevens aka Katherine Heigl as Tully and Sarah Chalke, who starred as Dr. Elliot Reid on Scrubs, plays Kate. Ali Skovbye as Young Tully, Roan Curtis as Young Kate Ben Lawson as Ryan, Beau Garrett as Cloud, and Yael Yurman as Marah are the other main characters in the show.
What is Firefly Lane about?
The story is about two best friends who couldn’t have been any more different but they are inseparable through complications, difficulties, and roller coasters of life. The show spans over several decades, with the lead stars decked out in aging make-up for some scenes, with the drama suggesting that “the greatest love story of all can be between friends”.
Tully is the brash and bold girl you can’t ignore, while Kate is the mousy shy girl you never notice. However, their contrasting personalities bring out the best friendship ever! One goes on to fabulous wealth and fame, the other chooses marriage and motherhood — but through the decades, their bond remains — until it faces the ultimate test.
