Kate Beckinsale has committed to lead the new eight-episode Amazon Prime and ITV co-produced TV series thriller “The Widow” from writers and executive producers Harry and Jack Williams (“The Missing,” “Fleabag”).
Beckinsale plays Georgia Wells, a widow who has cut herself off from her previous life and is a shell of what she was. After seeing her ‘late’ husband on the news, she must face the world and heads into the dangerous depths of the African Congo where she will stop at nothing until she gets to the truth about her past.
Sam Donovan (“Humans,” “Utopia”) and Olly Blackburn (“Donkey Punch,” “Glue”) direct the project which will premiere on ITV in the UK and on Prime Video in the US and more than 200 countries and territories. Filming begins this month in South Africa, Wales and Rotterdam.
