Showtime

"Penny Dreadful" alum Josh Hartnett has been cast as the lead in the upcoming series "Paradise Lost" from Spectrum Originals and Paramount Network.

The series is described as a Southern Gothic mystery about a psychiatrist ("Jane the Virgin” star Bridget Regan) who moves her family to her husband’s hometown in Mississippi, only to uncover some disturbing skeletons in the family closet. (Guessing he's not a werewolf in this one.)

Also joining the cast of the 10-episodes series are Barbara Hershey and  Nick Nolte.

The series is from Rodes Fishburne (co-creator of ABC's "Blood & Oil"). He and Arika Lisanne Mittman ("Dexter") will serve as showrunners. The pilot was helmed by "Blind Side" director John Lee Hancock.
