Demi Moore Set for Recurring Role in 'Brave New World' Series
The series is written by David Wiener, Grant Morrison, and Brian Taylor, based on the classic Aldous Huxley novel. It takes place in a utopian society where there is peace and stability thanks to the prohibition of monogamy, privacy, money, family, and history. Moore will play Linda, a woman from that World State who was left behind on trip to a so-called Savage Reservation. That also makes the actress the onscreen mother of Alden Ehrenreich, who will portray John the Savage.
The series follows Harry Lloyd (Bernard Marx) and Jessica Brown Findlay (Lenina Crowne) as they journey to the Savage Reservation and get into a dangerous situation. They're rescued by John, leading them to bring him back to the World State. The cast also includes Kylie Bunbury, Hannah John-Kamen, Sen Mitsuji, Joseph Morgan, and Nina Sosanya.
It's unclear how many episodes Moore has signed on for. Prior to this project, her most recent recurring TV roles were on "Animals" and "Empire." She has also continued to star in films, including "Blind" and the upcoming "Corporate Animals."
"Brave New World" comes from UCP and Amblin Television. Weiner is the showrunner and is executive producing alongside Morrison, Darryl Frank, Justin Falvey, and Owen Harris. Taylor will be credited as an executive produce for the first episode and then as a consultant beyond that.
