'GoT' Star Michiel Huisman Has Been Cast With Kaley Cuoco In New Thriller Series

Game of Thrones' Michiel Huisman has been cast alongside The Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco in a brand new thriller series.

The Flight Attendant is set to come to HBO Max's new streaming service and will star the 38-year-old actor who played Daario Naharis, Commander of the Stormcrows and devotee of Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones. He is set to be the male lead.

The series will feature eight one-hour shows, according to Deadline.

It will be based on the book of the same name by Chris Bohialian, a New York Times bestselling author and will be produced by Kaley.

The creepy-sounding show will follow a flight attendant who awakes in the wrong hotel room in Dubai, to find a dead man on the floor.

Scared of being blamed, she leaves him there and doesn't report it, instead heading back to her home in New York City as though nothing has happened, but the police soon catch up with her.

Unfortunately for her, she cannot remember what actually happened, wondering if she could well be the killer.

It certainly sounds gripping.

It is one of HBO Max's original line up of shows that will launch on the service when it lands in the US in 2020.

As far as we're aware though, the streaming service is not set to be rolled out in the UK just yet, but will launch internationally if it proves successful.

Speaking at the Television Critics Association (TCA) press tour in Los Angeles, Kevin Reilly, Chief Creative Officer said: "You can expect that it will be an international service, but initially we are focused on domestic."

"First it has to succeed here [in the US], so that's why the first focus is on domestic."

We imagine it's going to be a huge hit though, as it will air all of HBO's original content such as Game of Thrones, Big Little Lies and Westworld, as well as content from WarnerMedia, that owns the service.

That means it will also show everything from Friends and The Big Bang Theory, to The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Sex and the City and Riverdale.

Other HBO Max originals will include Crime Farm, produced by Nicole Kidman, a rom-com starring Anna Kendrick and an animated series of Gremlins.

It sounds epic.

The Flight Attendant is expected to land in spring 2020, but we'll have to wait longer here in the UK for it.

Let's just hope the service does well then. Fingers crossed.
