Missing Lena Headey on your TV week after week? That will soon change. In addition to a voice role in Netflix's Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, Headey is now attached to star in Rita, an hour-long dramedy pilot for Showtime. The cable network handed out a pilot production order on the project.
In Rita, Headey will play the titular character, described as "a headstrong, unconventional teacher," Rita is also a single mom who "takes on every kind of authority—as well as her family—in a messy and unfiltered way."
Sounds like a good partner for Shameless.
