Mon Cheri Hosts Barbara Tag 2016"Trust" is counting on a "Million Dollar Baby."

Two-time Academy Award winner Hilary Swank is joining the cast of the FX drama "Trust," created by Danny Boyle. She'll star opposite Donald Sutherland in the 10-episode limited series set in 1973.

Swank will play Gail Getty, the mother of John Paul Getty III, heir to the Getty oil fortune, who is kidnapped in Rome by mafia members seeking a multi-million dollar ransom. The Italian police don't take the kidnapping seriously and his father is in a heroin daze, so it's up to Gail to get her son back. The only problem is that she's broke. Sutherland is J. Paul Getty, the family patriarch.

This marks Swank's first television series since the '90s, when she appeared in shows like "Beverly Hills, 90210" and "Leaving LA." She went on to a successful, acclaimed film career, winning Oscars for "Boys Don't Cry" and "Million Dollar Baby."

"Trust" is slated to premiere in January 2018.
