FX has ordered a limited series based on Jon Krakauer’s Mormon crime drama Under the Banner of Heaven with Andrew Garfield and Daisy Edgar-Jones starring.

The series, which is for FX on Hulu, is created by Academy Award-winner Dustin Lance Black (Milk) with Hell or High Water helmer David Mackenzie directing.

The book follows a devout detective, whose faith is tested as he investigates a brutal murder that seems to be connected to an esteemed Utah family’s spiral into LDS fundamentalism and their distrust in the government.

The Amazing Spider-Man star Garfield will play Pyre, an elder of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS), otherwise known as Mormons, who is committed to his Church and family but begins to question some of the Church’s teachings through his contact with a suspected murderer.

Normal People star Edgar-Jones play as Brenda, a young faithful Mormon who is the victim of a brutal murder.
