Kaley Cuoco to Star in Thriller Series 'The Flight Attendant' for WarnerMedia
Kaley Cuoco isn't leaving Warner Bros. now that "The Big Bang Theory" is over.
The actress is set to star in and executive produce a thriller series for WarnerMedia called "The Flight Attendant." It's part of a new agreement with Warner Bros Television, according to Variety. She signed an exclusive, multiyear deal with a talent holding provision and will develop additional TV projects with her production company, Yes, Norman.
"The Flight Attendant" is based on the 2018 novel of the same name by Chris Bohjalian. It centers on a hard-drinking flight attendant who wakes up in a Dubai hotel room one morning with a dead man and no recollection of what happened. Steve Yockey ("Supernatural") is set to adapt the story, and he'll executive produce alongside Cuoco, Suzanne McCormack, and Berlanti Productions' Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter.
This isn't Cuoco's first post-"The Big Bang Theory" TV project. She's also set to voice Harley Quinn in Warner Bros.'s upcoming animated series centered on the supervillain. Yes, Norman is again producing, with Cuoco among the project's executive producers.
"The Flight Attendant" will premiere on the the forthcoming WarnerMedia streaming service, which is slated to launch in 2020.
