As pilot season continues over in the States, we can now reveal our fourth HH client to land a lead/recurring role in a new drama pilot is NIGEL LINDSAY.
NIGEL will star in The Devil You Know, co-written by Orange Is The New Black creator Jenji Kohan, Bruce Miller and Tracy Miller. Described as a provocative period drama, The Devil You Know explores the circumstances around one of the most compelling chapters in American history — the infamous Salem Witch Trials in 17th century New England, where intolerance and repression set neighbour against neighbour and led a town to mass hysteria.
The show will be brutal, multi-layered, often shocking with a wealth of fantastically drawn characters. Starring alongside Eddie Izzard, NIGEL is on board to play Dr. William Griggs, the local doctor, a man of science and reason; extremely likable and described by townsfolk as an “exuberant bear of a man!”
Production on the pilot — a co-production between HBO and Lionsgate TV — has just commenced in Boston, Massachusetts and is being directed by the legendary Gus Van Sant (Good Will Hunting, My Own Private Idaho, Elephant, Milk). Congrats NIGEL!
