After a protracted round of negotiations, HBO’s True Detective has chosen the Oscar-winning actress and filmmaker to star in the fourth season. Foster will also be listed as the anthology’s executive producer.
Night Country, the title of True Detective’s fourth season, is still in the planning phases, but Foster’s appointment makes a formal series green light all but a certainty. According to HBO, True Detective is as follows: Night Country: The six guys who run the Tsalal Arctic Research Station disappear without a trace when the long winter night descends on Ennis, Alaska. Detectives Liz Danvers and Evangeline Navarro will have to face their own darkness and delve into the haunted realities buried beneath the perpetual ice in order to solve the case.
Foster is going to be Liz Danvers. It was not immediately possible to obtain more information on the character.
The scripts will be written by Alan Page Arriaga (Fear the Walking Dead, Shining Girls), who will also serve as a writer, along with Issa Lopez (Tigers Are Not Afraid, Secondary Effects). The pilot and several other episodes will be directed by Lopez. Along with Adele Romanski and Mark Ceryak of Barry Jenkins’ Pastel banner, they both executive produce. Drama’s production company is called Anonymous Content. Additionally, Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson, and Mari Jo Winkler, who were the original True Detective stars, are executive producers. Although neither Cary Joji Fukunaga nor series creator Nic Pizzolatto will be engaged in the creative of season four, they are both listed as EPs.
Foster’s largest TV role since she began her career as a child model and appeared in shows like Mayberry RFD, Napoleon and Samantha, and The Courtship of Eddie’s Father, among others, is True Detective: Night Country. Foster has recently voiced characters on The Simpsons. For her roles in The Accused and Silence of the Lambs, Foster won the Best Actress Oscar. CAA and Matthew Saver Law Offices are her agents.
Arriaga works with Hansen Jacobson and UTA.
