Nicole Kidman To Feature In And Executive Produce Paramount+ Original Series ‘LIONESS’
Nicole Kidman is all set to be in “LIONESS.”
The Academy Award winner has joined the cast of Taylor Sheridan’s upcoming Paramount+ series “LIONESS”. Kidman will also executive produce the show.
Based on a real-life CIA program, “LIONESS” follows Cruz Manuelos (De Oliveira), a passionate but rough-around-the-edges young Marine chosen to join the CIA’s Lioness Engagement Team to aid in the internal destruction of a terrorist group.
Kidman will feature as Kaitlyn Meade, who is described as “the CIA’s Senior Supervisor who has had a long career of playing the politics game.”
Zoe Saldaña will play Joe, Lioness’ station chief in charge of training, managing and leading her female undercover operatives.
