TNT’s ‘One Day She’ll Darken’ Casts Seven to Star Alongside Chris Pine, Including ‘Training Day’ Alum

The upcoming TNT limited drama series “One Day She’ll Darken” has rounded out its main cast with the addition of seven new cast members, the network announced Friday.

Chris Pine was previously announced as one of the show’s stars and executive producers, playing the role of Jay Singletary, a former Marine turned paparazzo. He will be joined by: India Eisley (“Underworld Awakening,” “Look Away”) as Fauna Hodel; Jefferson Mays (“The Americans,” “Law & Order: SVU”) as George Hodel; Yul Vazquez (“Last Flag Flying”) as Billis; Justin Cornwell (“Training Day,” “We Are Boats”) as Terrence Shye; Dylan Smith (“Maze Runner: The Death Cure,” “Lemonade”) as Sepp; Jay Paulson (“Mad Men”) as Ohls; and Golden Brooks (“Girlfriends”) as Jimmy Lee. Previously announced star Leland Orser will appear as Peter Sullivan, a night managing editor for the Los Angeles Times.

The six-episode series tells the story of Fauna Hodel who was given away at birth. As Fauna begins to investigate the secrets to her past, she follows a sinister trail that swirls ever closer to an infamous Hollywood gynecologist, Dr. George Hodel, a man involved in the darkest Hollywood debauchery.

“Wonder Woman” director Patty Jenkins is attached to direct the first two episodes. Sam Sheridan, author of “A Fighter’s Heart” and “The Disaster Diaries,” is set to write the series, inspired by the life of Fauna Hodel. The series is being produced by Turner’s Studio T, with Jenkins, Anonymous Content’s Michael Sugar, Pine and Sheridan serving as executive producers. Production begins next month in Los Angeles.

Eisley is repped by ICM and Primary Wave Entertainment. Mays is repped by Abrams Artists Agency, Cornerstone Talent Agency, and Authentic Talent & Literary Management. Vasquez is repped by Gersh and Untitled Entertainment. Cornwell is repped by UTA, Anonymous Content and Ziffren Brittenham. Smith is repped by Curtis Brown Group and Elevate Entertainment. Paulson is repped by Don Buchwald and Associates. Brooks is repped by Global Artists Agency and Primary Wave Entertainment.
