Story by Jack Foley

EWAN McGregor has been dropping some teasers about his starring role in forthcoming HBO series The Corrections.

Based on Jonathan Franzen’s 2001 novel that traces the troubled lives of an elderly Midwestern couple and their three children from the 1950s to the millennium, the pilot also stars Oscar winners Dianne Wiest and Chris Cooper.

But speaking about his excitement for the project, McGregor – who will play troubled academic Chip – predicted that it will remain accurate to the source material as well as being “really detailed”.

Franzen has adapted his novel himself, alongside director Noah Baumbach.

“It looks like we’ll have the luxury of time to push deeper through the book and explore parts of the story that aren’t in it,” McGregor added.
