Numb3rs and Rescue Me alumna Diane Farr has booked a recurring role opposite Hugh Laurie in Hulu’s drama series Chance. The project is from author Kem Nunn, Room director Lenny Abrahamson, showrunner Alexandra Cunningham, producer Michael London and Fox 21 TV Studios.
Based on Nunn’s novel, Chance is described as a provocative psychological thriller that focuses on Eldon Chance (Laurie), a San Francisco-based forensic neuropsychiatrist who reluctantly gets sucked into a violent and dangerous world of mistaken identity, police corruption and mental illness. Farr will play Christina, Chance’s (Laurie) ex-wife. Perpetually irritated and quick to sense criticism, Christina is now an aspiring photographer with a dyslexic personal trainer boyfriend and an endlessly renewable resentment toward her former husband. Gretchen Mol, LisaGay Hamilton, Paul Adelstein, Stefania LaVie Owen also star.
Known for her previous roles in CBS’ Numb3rs and Rescue Me, Farr most recently recurred on Allegiance and Sin City Saints. She’s repped by UTA and Silver Lining Entertainment.
Chance has a two-season, 20-episode straight-to-series order for a late 2016 premiere.
