Kate Beckinsale is coming to the small screen for her first series regular gig ever. The “Underworld” actress has signed on to star in “The Widow,” an eight-episode thriller for Amazon Studios from ITV, The Hollywood Reporter confirms.
Scheduled to kick off production later this month in South Africa, Wales, and the Netherlands, the project sees Beckinsale playing Georgia Wells, a woman who has left her former life behind and “is no longer the woman she once was,” THR writes. “After seeing her ‘late’ husband on the news, Georgia is pulled back to face the world and will stop at nothing until she gets the truth about her past.” Her journey takes her all the way into “the depths of the African Congo where danger and revelation will greet her at every turn.”
Beckinsale earned raves for her role as a widow in 2016’s “Love & Friendship.
