Priyanka Bose, Taylor Napier and Emmanuel Imani have been cast in recurring roles on Amazon Studio’s upcoming epic, “Wheel of Time.” Bose will play Alanna Mosvani, a member of the Aes Sedai, the same organization of powerful women as Rosamund Pike’s Moiraine. Mosvani, known for both her kindness and her temper, has two Warders, Ihvon (Imani) and Maksim (Napier). The trio have a “complicated relationship built on love, sex and respect that welds them into a fearsome force in battle,” according to the studio.
Drama series “Mastermind” — based on Evan Ratliff‘s book “The Mastermind: Drugs. Empire. Murder. Betrayal” — is in development at Amazon Studios. Amazon will produce the series alongside the Russo brothers’ AGBO, Skybound Entertainment and 26 Keys, with Krysty Wilson-Cairns (“1917,” “Last Night in Soho”) adapting the screenplay. Based on a true story, the series centers on ex-programmer Paul Le Roux, global criminal mastermind-turned-DEA and FBI informant, and his lieutenants, who “compete for his power and affection, institute wild criminal schemes, and examine the nature of good and evil for each other in the process.”
