WarnerMedia Picks Up Drama 'The Flight Attendant' Starring Kaley Cuoco

The Big Bang Theory's Kaley Cuoco is staying in the Warner Bros. family. The actress has today signed a massive new deal with the company that includes her production company as well as a talent deal. It was further confirmed that she will star in the original drama series The Flight Attendant, which has officially been picked up by WarnerMedia's forthcoming streaming service.

Based on the novel by Chris Bohjalian, the drama revolves around Cassandra Bowden (Cuoco), a binge-drinking flight attendant prone to blackouts who wakes up one morning next to a dead body and begins to lie as she looks to fill in the blanks from the fateful night in Dubai.

Steve Yockey will write the adaptation. He will executive produce with Cuoco, Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter. Suzanne McCormack will co-executive produce. Warner Bros. Television, Berlanti Productions and Yes Norman Productions will produce.

"I love that Warner Bros. is my home away from home, and I couldn't be more excited to continue this incredibly collaborative and gratifying relationship," said Cuoco. "They're stuck with me now!"
