Lili Taylor (pictured above; The Conjuring) has joined leads Dougray Scott and Famke Janssen in Netflix’s new original series “Hemlock Grove”, from executive producer Eli Roth and Gaumont International TV. The pilot is written by Brian McGreevey and Lee Shipman based on McGreevy’s upcoming goth horror novel.
The show “revolves around the murder of a young girl found close to the former Godfrey steel mill. The suspects in her killing include Peter (Landon Liboiron), a 17-year-old Gypsy kid from the wrong side of the tracks, and Roman (Bill Skarsgard), the arrogant Godfrey scion, whose sister Shelley is disturbingly deformed and whose mother, Olivia (Janssen), is the beautiful and controlling grand dame of Hemlock Grove.”
Per TV Line, “Taylor will recur as Liboiron’s mother, whose way of life is anathema to the rich teen’s mom (Famke Janssen).“
