Victoria Pedretti has signed on for a lead role in the upcoming Hulu drama series “Saint X,” Variety has learned.
The series is based on the Alexis Schaitkin novel of the same name. It is described as a psychological drama, which is told via multiple timelines and perspectives. It’s a show about how a young woman’s mysterious death during an idyllic Caribbean vacation creates a traumatic ripple effect that eventually pulls her surviving sister into a dangerous pursuit of the truth.
Pedretti will star as Emily, a sharp and ambitious woman whose carefully constructed, seemingly perfect life begins to crumble.

She is perhaps best known for starring in the Netflix series “The Haunting of Hill House” as well as the followup series “The Haunting of Bly Manor.” She is also known for appearing in Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood.”
She is repped by Gersh, Management 360, Rogers & Cowan PMK, and Sloane Offer.
