“Mad Men” actor Jared Harris and newcomer Adam Nagaitis are set to star in AMC’s upcoming anthology drama series, “The Terror.”
Based on the bestselling novel by Dan Simmons, “The Terror” centers on a Royal Naval expedition crew in the mid-19th century, searching for the Northwest Passage when the crew is attacked by a mysterious predator, forcing them into a suspenseful and desperate game of survival.
David Kajganich and Soo Hugh serve as executive producers, writers, and co-showrunners with Scott Free, Emjag Productions, and Entertainment 360.
The ten-episode series is set to premiere in 2017.
Harris can be seen next in the Brad Pitt World War II thriller “Allied” and also has the Netflix period drama “The Crown” coming out in November. He is repped by ICM Partners and Independent Talent Group.
For Nagaitis, the role is expected to be a break-through job for the up and coming actor as sources say it was a highly sought after part.
He was last seen in “Suffragette” opposite Carey Mulligan and recently wrapped production on “The Commuter” starring Liam Neeson. He is repped by Management 360 and Curtis Brown Group.
