“Orphan Black” star Tatiana Maslany will join Matthew Rhys in the “Perry Mason” limited series at HBO which Robert Downey Jr. is executive producing.
The series is set in 1932 Los Angeles and will tell an origin story for Mason (Rhys), who when the story begins is not a lawyer but a down-on-his-luck private investigator. When the case of the decade breaks down his door, his relentless pursuit of the truth reveals a fractured city and, possibly, a path to redemption for himself.
Maslany will play the key role of Sister Alice, the leader of the Radiant Assembly of God. She preaches three sermons a day to a hungry congregation and a radio audience that spans the country. She wields great power when she speaks and plans to use it in ways only she can know.
Rolin Jones and Ron Fitzgerald serve as writers and showrunners.
