One of the most consistently reliable and still undervalued actresses working at present, Carla Gugino is coming off stellar turns in both the Stephen King film adaptation “Gerald’s Game” and the series adaptation of “The Haunting of Hill House,” both of which were helmed by Mike Flanagan for Netflix.
She keeps up the standard from the looks of it with the first teaser trailer for “Jett,” the new Cinemax original series in which she plays a world-class thief Daisy ‘Jett’ Kowalski, fresh out of prison and already being forced back into what got her there by a group of eccentric, morally ambivalent and dangerous criminals.
Budding femme fatales and compromised law enforcers are determined to exploit her skills for their own ends, but she may just be able to turn the tables on them all if she plays her cards right.
Boasting a noir tone and “Breaking Bad” alum Giancarlo Esposito, the series also includes Elena Anaya, Gil Bellows, Mustafa Shakir, Michael Aronov, Gaite Jansen and Jodie Turner-Smith. The series premieres in June.
