Renowned Aussie performers Jacki Weaver and Damon Herriman have been cast in an upcoming US drama Our Lady, Ltd. coming to Stan in 2019.
Production is currently underway in Santa Fe, New Mexico. with Sir Ben Kingsley, Jimmi Simpson, Chris Conrad and Luis Guzman. It will also co-star Terry O’Quinn, Kurtwood Smith and Hana Mae Lee as recurring guest cast.
The 10 part series follows James (Simpson), a young grifter, as he attempts to prey upon Pastor Byron Brown (Kingsley), who turns out to be far more dangerous than he suspects. The pastor and his wife Lillian (Weaver)—known to their parishioners as Pa and Ma—have used religion to bilk hundreds of innocent people out of their life savings.
Herriman will play Paul Allen Brown, the wayward son of Pa and Ma, and architect of a scheme to fleece his own parents out of millions with partner James (Simpson). Conrad will play New Leaf, a former convict whose attempt at legitimacy via small business ownership is thwarted by Ma and Pa. Losing everything, he directs that violence and intensity toward hunting the stranger he believes to be responsible – the same identity James just assumed. O’Quinn will star as Tom Walker, a Texas Ranger whose investigation into the death of a young girl lands him in Half Acre where his primary suspect, Paul, has resurfaced. Lee will play Scotty Sholes, the accountant for Our Lady of Perpetual Grace who has access to the church’s financial records after Ma and Pa go missing and becomes a dangerous obstacle for James.
Steve Conrad and Bruce Terris (Patriot) serve as executive producers and showrunners, with Conrad directing six episodes.
Jacki Weaver also stars in Stan’s upcoming local production Bloom, due to drop over summer.
