Doctor Who star Karen Gillan has joined the cast of HBO’s new “provocative period drama” pilot, The Devil You Know.
Co-written by Orange Is The New Black creator Jenji Kohan, Deadline reports that The Devil You Know will explore the infamous Salem Witch Trials in 17th century New England, “where intolerance and repression set neighbor against neighbor and led a town to mass hysteria”.
Also starring comedian Eddie Izzard, Damien Molony (Being Human), Julian Rhind Tutt (Banished), Ewen Bremner (Trainspotting) and Zawe Ashton (Fresh Meat), the pilot is due to begin filming in Boston this spring.
Karen Gillan will play Jane Porter, the youngest daughter of Ewen Bremner’s character, Israel Porter, patriarch of the powerful Porter clan.
