Jun 27, 2019  •  Post A Comment

After the recent conclusion of HBO’s megahit “Game of Thrones,” one of the show’s biggest stars is headed to Showtime. Lena Headey, who received four Emmy nominations for her performance as “Thrones” favorite Cersei Lannister, will play the title role in the Showtime dramedy pilot “Rita.”

Headey will executive produce the pilot, a co-production of Showtime and Platform One Media, along with creator and showrunner Christian Torpe, who is writing the pilot based on his award-winning original Danish series.

Showtime describes Headey’s character as “a headstrong, unconventional teacher and single mother who takes on every kind of authority — as well as her family — in a messy and unfiltered way.”
