STAN secures exclusive rights to new Jacki Weaver drama seris Our Lady, LTD
Stan has confirmed modern noir drama series OUR LADY, LTD will premiere on the SVOD service in 2019.
The ten episode series which will star Australians Jacki and Damon Herriman alongside Sir Ben Kingsley, Jimmi Simpson, Chris Conrad and Luis Guzman has commenced production in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
The announcement comes as STAN is in full swing promoting new locally produced original series BLOOM which also features Weaver in a lead role. Bloom will premiere on January 1, 2018, with all 6 episodes dropping at once. A teaser trailer for Bloom is included below.
OUR LADY, LTD follows James (Simpson), a young grifter, as he attempts to prey upon Pastor Byron Brown (Kingsley), who turns out to be far more dangerous than he suspects. The pastor and his wife Lillian (Weaver)—known to their parishioners as Pa and Ma—have used religion to bilk hundreds of innocent people out of their life savings.
Herriman will play Paul Allen Brown, the wayward son of Pa and Ma, and architect of a scheme to fleece his own parents out of millions with partner James (Simpson). Conrad will play New Leaf, a former convict whose attempt at legitimacy via small business ownership is thwarted by Ma and Pa. Losing everything, he directs that violence and intensity toward hunting the stranger he believes to be responsible – the same identity James just assumed.
O’Quinn will star as Tom Walker, a Texas Ranger whose investigation into the death of a young girl lands him in Half Acre where his primary suspect, Paul, has resurfaced. Lee will play Scotty Sholes, the accountant for Our Lady of Perpetual Grace who has access to the church’s financial records after Ma and Pa go missing and becomes a dangerous obstacle for James.
OUR LADY, LTD comes exclusively to Stan as part of its multi-year partnership with MGM. Other MGM Television dramas currently steaming on Stan include The Truth About The Harry Quebert Affair, Condor and Get Shorty.
