Fresh off his Tony-nominated stint in Broadway’s She Loves Me, Zachary Levi is set to co-star in Netflix’s six-hour miniseries Alias Grace, sources confirm to TVLine exclusively.
Based on Margaret Atwood’s novel of the same name, Alias Grace centers around the true story and controversial conviction of Grace Marks (played by 11.22.63 breakout Sarah Gadon), an Irish immigrant who becomes a Canadian domestic servant and is later sentenced to prison for the murders of her employer and his housekeeper in 1843.
Details on Levi’s role remain under wraps. Netflix, which is co-producing with Canadian broadcaster CBC, declined to comment.
Levi’s post-Chuck TV work has included a starring role in Heroes Reborn and a recurring stint in Telenovela (both for NBC).
