HBO dark comedy thriller, The Flight Attendant starring Kaley Cuoco in the title role, will premiere with a triple episode on Binge in late November.
Binge Executive Director, Alison Hurbert-Burns said: “The Flight Attendant is set to be the next bingeable obsession for Aussies with the loveable Cuoco in her first show since starring in one of the biggest comedies of all time, The Big Bang Theory. We can’t wait to bring this eight-part series to our audience.”
Cuoco plays Cassie Bowden, a first-class flight attendant and world-class party girl who meets a handsome passenger (Michiel Huisman, Game of Thrones) on her flight to Bangkok. After spending a luxurious night on the town together, the next morning she wakes up in bed with the man dead next to her — and no idea what happened.
Based on the novel of the same name by New York Times best-selling author Chris Bohjalian, The Flight Attendant follows Cuoco whose entire life changes overnight with a triple episode premiere, followed by double episodes weekly until the season finale on 18 December.
In addition to Cuoco, the cast includes Zosia Mamet (Girls), Michiel Huisman (Game of Thrones), Rosie Perez (Rise), T.R. Knight (Grey’s Anatomy), Colin Woodell (The Originals), Michelle Gomez (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), Merle Dandridge (Greenleaf), Griffin Matthews (Dear White People) and Nolan Gerard Funk (Awkward).
The Flight Attendant is produced by Warner Horizon Scripted Television, Berlanti Productions & Cuoco’s Yes, Norman Productions. Greg Berlanti, Kaley Cuoco, Steve Yockey, Marcie Ulin, Meredith Lavender and Sarah Schechter serve as executive producers, and Suzanne McCormack is Co-Executive Producer. Susanna Fogel directs and executive produces the first two episodes.
