The first trailer for Entertainment One's upcoming drama Decoding Annie Parker showcases Samantha Morton and Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul in ways you've never seen them before. Morton stars as the title character, who is going through a tumultuous time in her personal life, while geneticist Mary-Claire King (Helen Hunt) discovers the BRCA1 gene mutation, proving there is a hereditary link to cancer. Check out the first footage to see Aaron Paul as a long-haired pool boy in this drama based on a true story, which co-stars Alice Eve, Maggie Grace, Rashida Jones and Corey Stoll.
Annie Parker has a personal relationship with breast cancer. Her mother and her sister died of the disease and ultimately she is diagnosed with it too. Naturally affable with an offbeat sense of humor - even in the face of her own mortality, she struggles to hold her family and life together, as her body betrays her.
Meanwhile, geneticist Mary-Claire King is convinced there is a link between DNA and cancer - even if no one in her profession shares her belief. Against the advice of nearly all of her colleagues, she persists in her research and her dogged pursuit for funding that will lead to the groundbreaking study that will join the two women together.
