Tatiana Maslany Tapped for Amazon Pilot The Nightbeast

Tatiana Maslany is about to get down with the boogeyman: The Orphan Black actress is set to produce and star in a pilot for Amazon MGM Studios called The Nightbeast, Deadline reported Monday.

Helmed by Leah Rachel (Chambers) and Travis Jackson (Hemlock Grove), The Nightbeast follows “a young mother who is unsatisfied with her seemingly perfect suburban life, so she begins an affair with the boogeyman in her son’s closet — a surprisingly sexy man called the Nightbeast,” reads the description. “But this harmless affair she thought to be a figment of her imagination begins to have unexpected consequences, as her two worlds increasingly begin to collide in this seductive, darkly comedic tale.”
