Heroes Reborn alumna Rya Kihlstedt has booked a recurring role opposite Tig Notaro in Amazon’s new dark comedy series One Mississippi.

Loosely inspired by Notaro’s (Boyish Girl Interrupted) life, One Mississippi follows Tig as she deals with the complex reentry into her childhood hometown of Bay Saint Lucille, Mississippi. Kihlstedt will play Caroline, Tig’s mom, beautiful, wealthy, well-bred and well-educated Southern lady. Caroline is vibrant and no-nonsense and, in spite of her breeding, doesn’t allow others to judge her without a pushback.

Kihlstedt was a series regular NBC’s Heroes Reborn and just wrapped a recurring role on Showtime’s Ray Donovan. Her other TV credits include Masters of Sex, Perception, Nashville, Dexter and Once Upon a Time. Recent film credits include lead roles in indie features The Atticus Institute and Kin. She’s repped by Innovative Artists and Untitled Entertainment
