There’s more! Two actors are already attached to star, and they both have Academy Awards on their mantle. Cate Blanchett and Gary Oldman!

A series with the pedigree of Cuarón, Blanchett, and Oldman behind solidifies it as a must watch. No plot details have been released at this time. Casting is still underway for the rest of the ensemble.
