Michelle Dockery Godless Cast Netflix

Netflix’s Godless just acquired a goddess of British period drama.

Downton Abbey‘s Michelle Dockery will play the female lead in the streaming video site’s upcoming miniseries, our sister site Variety reports.

The 1880s-set Western drama follows a dangerous outlaw Frank (played by The Newsroom‘s Jeff Daniels) who will stop at nothing to hunt down his partner-turned-mortal enemy Roy (Skins‘ Jack O’Connell). Merritt Wever (Nurse Jackie) also stars.

Dockery will play Alice Fletcher, a ranch owner who hides Roy while Frank follows a lead to La Belle, N.M., a town where all of the residents are female.

Steven Soderbergh (The Girlfriend Experience) produces the mini, which was written by Scott Frank (Out of Sight).

Good Behavior, the TNT thriller in which Dockery stars, will premiere this summer.
