The role marks Temple’s latest in a streaming series, with the actress currently appearing in the critically-acclaimed Apple series “Ted Lasso.” Her other TV roles include “Vinyl,” “Little Birds,” and “Dirty John.” On the film side, she is known for starring in projects like “Maleficent,” “Atonement,” and “Palmer.”
She is repped by UTA, B-Side Management, Relevant, and Lichter Grossman.
“The Offer” will be written and executive produced by Nikki Toscano, who will also serve as showrunner, with Michael Toklin having created the series and also executive producing. Teller and Ruddy will executive produce along with Leslie Grief. Dexter Fletcher will direct the first and last block of episodes in addition to executive producing. Paramount Television Studios will produce.
“The Offer” was first announced as being in the works at Paramount Plus when ViacomCBS revealed they were rebranding the streamer CBS All Access. Other shows announced since then include series adaptations of films like “The Italian Job” and “Love Story,” as well as multiple shows from Taylor Sheridan under his rich overall deal with ViacomCBS.
