Netflix announced today via press release (h/t The Futon Critic) that actor Blake Jenner (Glee, Everybody Wants Some!!) has joined the cast of the upcoming series What/If.
Created by Mike Kelley, known for creating the hit ABC mystery drama Revenge, What/If will explore the effects of acceptable people committing deplorable acts. The streaming service has ordered a ten-episode season of 60-minute episodes executive produced by Kelley, Melissa Loy (Revenge), Alex Gartner and Charles Roven (Season of the Witch), Robert Zemeckis and Jack Rapke (Flight).
Kelley and the streaming service have a multi-season plan for the series, which will take on an anthology format as each new season will tackle a different morality tale inspired by culturally relevant events and how the power of one decision can change lives so drastically. Jenner will play the character Sean. He’s joined by previously announced cast members Renée Zellweger and Jane Levy.
