"What if I made you an offer too extraordinary to refuse?" Renée Zellweger asks in the first teaser for Netflix's neo-noir social thriller "What/If."

Netflix also announced the show's premiere date: Friday, May 24. Created by "Revenge's" Mike Kelley, the 10-episode first season explores the ripple effects of what happens when acceptable people start doing unacceptable things.

Zellweger — in her first TV role since guest-starring on "King of the Hill" in 2001 — plays a mysterious woman who makes a lucrative offer to a cash-strapped San Francisco newlywed couple. How very "Indecent Proposal."

"Welcome to the game," she purrs in the teaser, while dropping a chess piece.



The ensemble cast includes Jane Levy, Blake Jenner, Dave Annable, Samantha Ware, Keith Powers, and Daniella Pineda.

The series is intended to be an anthology, with each season tackling a different morality tale inspired by culturally consequential source material.
