Selma Blair is booking a flight to outer space: The Anger Management alumna will recur in Netflix’s upcoming sci-fi drama Another Life, headlined by Battlestar Galactica‘s Katee Sackhoff, our sister site Deadline reports.
In the 10-episode series, astronaut Niko Breckinridge (Sackhoff) and her young crew investigate the genesis of an alien artifact. During the process, they face unimaginable danger on what might very well be a one-way mission. Blair will play 21st-century influencer Harper Glass, who uses journalism, social media and keen intelligence in an attempt to break one of the biggest stories in human history.
The show hails from creator/showrunner Aaron Martin (Killjoys, Saving Hope, Being Erica) and executive producer Noreen Halpern (Alias Grace, Rookie Blue, Haven).
In addition to her run on the Charlie Sheen-starring sitcom Anger Management, Blair’s TV credits include The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, in which she portrayed Kris Jenner, and a starring role in the late-’90s WB comedy Zoe, Duncan, Jack & Jane. Most recently, she had a blink-and-you-missed-it cameo in another Netflix sci-fi drama: the Lost in Space reboot. And of course, the actress is also known for her memorable characters in films like Cruel Intentions and Legally Blonde.
