Ben Kingsley To Lead Noir Series For Epix

In his largest TV role to date, Ben Kingsley has been tapped to star in the ten-episode straight-to-series modern noir drama “Our Lady, LTD” for Epix and MGM Television.

The story revolves around a young grifter named James as he attempts to prey upon Pastor Byron Brown (Kingsley), who turns out to be far more dangerous than James suspects.

“Patriot” creator and “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” writer Steve Conrad along with “Empire” producer Bruce Terris will serve as executive producers and showrunners. Conrad will helm six of the episodes which begin shooting this fall in Santa Fe, New Mexico ahead of a 2019 premiere.

The series joins the in-development Batman prequel drama series “Pennyworth” and the Forest Whitaker-led crime drama “Godfather of Harlem” along with returning favorites “Berlin Station” and “Get Shorty” on the network.
