Halsey to Star in TV Series 'The Player's Table'!

Halsey is breaking into the TV world.

The show does not yet have a network attached. Halsey will also produce.

Here’s a plot summary: “The drama is set at an exclusive Long Island prep school and revolves around high school senior Jill Newman (Sweeney) who works to uncover the truth about her best friend’s death three years ago and the role she and her fellow ‘players’ — members of the secret society that rules the school— may have had in it.”

Halsey will play Rachel Calloway, “a formidable, emotionally troubled young woman who ignites Jill’s journey of finding the truth behind Shaila’s murder. Once a legendary member of The Players who graduated three years ago, Rachel left the group and dissociated from her wealthy Long Island roots when her younger brother, Graham, was convicted for Shaila’s murder. She is brought back to Long Island by her conviction that Graham is not responsible for this crime. Together, Rachel and Jill join forces to embark on a quest for the truth of what really happened that night, with the hope to exonerate her brother before he turns 18.”

Annabelle Attanasio (Mickey and the Bear) will write, direct and executive produce The Player’s Table.

Fans will remember that Halsey and Sydney also teamed for Halsey‘s music video for “Graveyard.” The duo “hit it off and Sweeney sent her the project, hoping that they’d work together again on it,” the outlet reports.

Halsey also just dropped something else for the first time!
