Josh Hartnett (Penny Dreadful) and Bridget Regan (Jane the Virgin) have been tapped to star in the upcoming drama series Paradise Lost, which will first air on the Spectrum cable platform before its linear debut on Paramount Network. The first season will produce 10 episodes.

The drama revolves around a psychiatrist (Regan) who moves with her family from California to her husband's (Hartnett) hometown in Mississippi only to uncover shameful secrets that irrevocably change the lives of everyone involved.

The cast also features Barbara Hershey, Gail Bean, Danielle Deadwyler, Shane McRae and Nick Nolte.

Rodes Fishburne created the drama. He will serve as co-showrunner alongside Arika Lisanne Mittman. They will executive produce with David Kanter, Jeff Okin, Romeo Tirone and director John Lee Hancock. Paramount Television and Anonymous Content will produce.

"Paradise Lost is a complex, compelling series full of incredible characters, including the small town in Mississippi where it is set," said Keith Cox, President of Development and Production, Paramount Network and TV Land. "We're excited to see John Lee Hancock bring this incredible world to life, building on the vision that Rodes Fishburne and Arika Lisanne Mittman have so vividly created."
