Britne Oldford (“American Horror Story”) has been cast as the female lead in Syfy’s upcoming 13-episode adaptation of Whitley Strieber’s best-selling novel “Alien Hunter.”
To be tiled simply “Hunters,” the series will be based on a novel that tells the story of a brilliant police detective’s obsessive investigation into the mysterious disappearance of his wife, which he eventually concludes wasn’t at all voluntary, even though it initially appears that way. Somebody is taking people and making it look like they walked out on their own. As the detective gets closer to the truth, his work comes to the attention of Special Agent Diana Glass, a member of the most secret police unit on the planet, tasked with seeking out the most brilliant and lethal criminals, but from another world. Special Agent Glass leads the detective into a hidden fantastical world of extraordinary challenge and danger, as they take on the most difficult police assignment ever known to man.
Nathan Phillips will play the brilliant police detective in search of his missing wife, while Oldford, as the female lead, will be Special Agent Diana Glass. The Syfy adaptation won’t be a literal translation of the book, but it looks like the main premise and 2 lead characters will remain the similar, even if their identities are changed.
In addition to appearing in “American Horror Story,” Oldford’s recent credits also include a stint on “The Flash,” as well as the now-canceled legal drama series “The Divide.”
