Ben Kingsley joins EPIX series Our Lady, LTD
EPIX has just given the green light to the Sir Ben Kingsley series Our Lady, LTD. The 10-episode drama from MGM Television will follow James, a young grifter, as he attempts to prey upon Pastor Byron Brown (Kingsley), who turns out to be far more dangerous than he suspects.
Steve Conrad and Bruce Terris (Patriot) will serve as executive producers and show runners for the series, which is expected to go into production in Santa Fe, New Mexico this fall with an eye towards a 2019 premiere. Conrad will likewise direct six episodes, while Escape Artists’ Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch will also serve as executive producers.
Ben Kingsley has a number of projects in production, but can next be seen in the suspense thriller Operation Finale, in which he plays a NAZI officer who masterminded the Holocaust. The film is directed by Chris Weitz and co-stars Oscar Isaac, Melanie Laurent, Lior Raz and Nick Kroll. Operation Finale hits theaters on August 29.
