Hulu has ordered both “Reprisal” and “The Great” to series, the streamer announced at the Television Critics Association winter press tour on Monday.

“Reprisal,” which will launch in 2019, is described as a hyper-kinetic revenge tale following a relentless femme fatale (Abigail Spencer) who, after being left for dead, leads a vengeful campaign against a bombastic gang of gear heads.

The drama series stars Spencer, Rodrigo Santoro, Mena Massoud, Madison Davenport, Rhys Wakefield, David Dastmalchian, W. Earl Brown and Gilbert Owuor. The series was created, written and executive produced by Josh Corbin. Warren Littlefield, Barry Jossen and Jonathan van Tulleken–who also directed the pilot–serve as executive producers. Ann Johnson and Graham Littlefield serve as co-executive producers. The series is produced by A+E Studios in association with The Littlefield Company.

“The Great” will trace the rise of Catherine the Great through 18th Century Russia. The series will launch on 2020. Elle Fanning stars as Catherine, along with Nicholas Hoult, Phoebe Fox, Adam Godley, Gwilym Lee, Charity Wakefield, Douglas Hodge and Sacha Dhawan.

“The Great” was created, written and executive produced by Tony McNamara. Marian Macgowan, Thruline’s Josh Kesselman and Ron West, Echo Lake’s Brittany Kahan Ward, Doug Mankoff and Andrew Spaulding, Fanning, and Matt Shakman executive produce.
