DESCRIPTION:
(from Spectrum's press release, March 2021) Renowned film and television actress Lena Headey has boarded the previously announced Spectrum Originals and AMC Networks psychological thriller BEACON 23. Headey will star in the series as, "Aster", a woman who mysteriously finds her way to a lonely beacon keeper on his lighthouse in the darkest recesses of space. She will also executive produce the project through her production company, Peephole Productions, as part of her first-look deal with Boat Rocker Studios. From creator Zak Penn (Ready Player One, The Avengers), this intimate, suspenseful thriller follows two people whose fates become entangled after they find themselves trapped together at the end of the known universe. A tense battle of wills unfolds at the edge of space, Halan, the beacon keeper, begins to question whether Aster is friend or foe as her ability to disguise her agenda and motives could make her a formidable opponent. Co-commissioned by Spectrum Originals and AMC Networks, co-produced by Spectrum Originals and Boat Rocker Studios, the series is based on the book of the same name by The New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Hugh Howey. After a nine-month exclusive run for Spectrum, BEACON 23 will be an AMC original with a second window across AMC Networks platforms.
