Tatiana Maslany has accepted AMC’s invitation to a bonfire. Literally, it’s the name of her new show.
The Orphan Black actress is set to star in Invitation to a Bonfire, a new psychological thriller, AMC Networks announced Aug. 10.
But the Emmy winner will do more than just act in Invitation to a Bonfire, which is based on the novel by Adrienne Celt, as she’s also executive producing the series.
The series, set in the 1930s at an all-girls boarding school in New Jersey, follows Zoya (Freya Mavor), a young Russian immigrant and groundskeeper, who is drawn into a lethal love triangle with the school’s newest faculty member—a novelist, Leo (Pilou Asbæk)—and his wife (Maslany).
Maslany will portray the character of Vera Orlov, who is “more than Leo’s wife; she is his editor—and his everything,” the network describes. This casting for Maslany is a bit of a homecoming, as she previously starred in Orphan Black, which is part of AMC Networks.
