The project will be produced for AMC and the actress will play Rowan, a brilliant doctor who comes to terms with her fate as the heir to a family of powerful witches.
Dan McDermott, president of AMC Studios and AMC Networks, said:
Alexandra is a unique talent who has lit up the screen in everything she’s starred in and we couldn’t be happier to have her on board to lead the cast of the series that will be at the heart of Anne Rice’s expansion of the universe on AMC and AMC +. We found our Rowan and we can’t wait for her to meet viewers later this year in a brilliantly conceived series led by Esta, Michelle and Mark.
The first season will consist of eight episodes and Esta Spalding and Michelle Ashford will be engaged as writers and producers of the series. Spalding will also be showrunner.
