Juliette Lewis is going to give TV another try.
The Oscar nominee has signed on to co-star with Matt Dillon and Carla Gugino in FOX’s “Wayward Pines,” from executive producer M. Night Shyamalan (“The Sixth Sense,” “After Earth”), according to Deadline.
While searching for a pair of missing federal agents, Secret Service agent Ethan Burke (Dillon) arrives in a small Idaho town, only to find out that leaving will be more difficult — and more dangerous — than he thought.
Lewis will play a bartender named Beverly who also doesn’t trust the idyllic facade of Wayward Pines.
Chad Hodge (“The Playboy Club”) created the series based on Blake Crouch’s best-selling book series. Also set to appear on the show are Toby Jones, Shannyn Sossamon, and Melissa Leo.
Lewis recently co-starred on NBC’s short-lived “The Firm,” which was cancelled after just one season last summer.
The actress will soon be seen opposite Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts in “August: Osage County.”
