Death in Paradise star Joséphine Jobert has been cast in upcoming AI surveillance drama Concordia.

According to What to Watch, Jobert will be playing the role of Mathilde in the series, which is set in a fictional city where AI "ensures a free and fair society."

The experiment has since become so popular that multiple cities worldwide are now planing to replicate the system, however just as the project is set to expand into Germany a secret occurs which threatens to destroy the whole system.

"For its 20th anniversary, the AI driven town of Concordia is due to expand to Germany," an official logline for the series reads.

House of the Dragon star Nanna Blondell, Ted Lasso's Ruth Bradley, Christiane Paul and Steven Sowah will also star in the series, which has been executive produced by Game of Thrones' Frank Doelger. Barbara Eder will directing the six-part series.

"I'm very excited to be part of a project that has such thought-provoking and increasingly pertinent subject matter. The exploration of surveillance, privacy, and data is the backdrop for this chilling thriller," Doelger said of the series.

"Concordia merges both technology and its abuses, and also how it shapes the hierarchy of society. It is fantastic to be working with such a talented cast and crew in bringing this story to life."
