Landon Liboiron is going from a time traveling sci-fi drama to a horror series as the former “Terra Nova” co-star has been tapped to join Netflix’s original series “Hemlock Grove,” THR has learned exclusively.
From director/executive producer Eli Roth, the 13-episode horror series is “set in a ravaged Pennsylvania steel town and begins with the discovery of a young girl’s body. As the crime goes unsolved and outlandish rumors mount, Roman (Bill Skarsgard) and Peter decide to find the killer on their own, confronting unspeakable truths about themselves and Hemlock Grove as the mystery unfolds.”
Framke Janssen is set to play Olivia, the otherworldly beautiful and controlling grande dame of Hemlock Grove. The Peter role has not been cast.
Netflix will make the first season of Hemlock Grove instantly available in early 2013.
Based on the book of the same name by Brian McGreevy, he will write and executive produce the series alongside EPs Eric Newman (The Last Exorcism, Dawn of the Dead), Lee Shipman (Harker, Zorro Reborn), Michael Connolly (How to Train Your Dragon) and Mark Verheiden (“Battlestar Gallactica”).
