Britton will co-star with Taylor Schilling and child actor Colin O’Brien on the 10-episode drama series adaptation of Ann Napolitano's novel Dear Edward. The series is described as "a heartbreaking, life-affirming, and uplifting story about survival, resilience, connection, and the examination of what makes us human." Deadline reports Britton has signed on to appear for only one season. Dear Edward serves as a reunion for Friday Night Lights alum Britton and showrunner Katims. "Dear Edward, the first series to come out of Katims’ overall deal with Apple TV+, has been in the works for over a year," reports Deadline's Nellie Andreeva. "Britton was approached early on and came on board last fall though negotiating her deal dragged on for months, holding up the formal series greenlight. As her contract was getting finalized, Orange Is the New Black alumna Schilling and young actor O’Brien were cast as leads. Dear Edward tells the story of Edward Adler (O’Brien), a 12-year-old boy who survives a devastating commercial plane crash that kills every other passenger on the flight, including his family. As Edward and a diverse ensemble of others affected by the tragedy try to make sense of life after the crash, unexpected friendships, romances and communities are formed. Schilling plays Edward’s aunt Lacey who takes him in after the crash. Britton plays Lacey’s friend whose husband died in the crash." This is the latest one-season series for Britton. In recent years, Britton starred on 9-1-1 and The White Lotus, each for one season.
