Tom Hiddleston is set to lead the ten-episode political thriller limited series “White Stork” for Netflix.
Hiddleston will play a politician named James Cooper whose career in parliament is threatened by a vetting process that uncovers a series of dangerous secrets about his past. The project was originally setup at AMC under the title “Spadehead”.
The series was created and written by Chris Dunlop (“Jericho”), who also serves as an executive producer. Kristoffer Nyholm (“Taboo”) will direct.
The project marks Hiddleston’s first non-MCU live-action work since “Kong: Skull Island” in 2017 and aims to air next year.
