Tatiana Maslany To Star In ‘The Nightbeast’ Pilot For Amazon MGM Studios

Tatiana Maslany is set to star in The Nightbeast, a pilot for Amazon MGM Studios from Leah Rachel (Chambers) and Travis Jackson (Hemlock Grove).

Maslany will also produce the pilot that follows a young mother who is unsatisfied with her seemingly perfect suburban life, so she begins an affair with the boogeyman in her son’s closet – a surprisingly sexy man called the Nightbeast. But this harmless affair she thought to be a figment of her imagination begins to have unexpected consequences, as her two worlds increasingly begin to collide in this seductive, darkly comedic tale.

Recent credits for Maslany, who won an Emmy in 2016 for starring in Orphan Black, include Invitation to a Bonfire, Invincible, and She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.
