The show moves to the Bay Area with two of the characters from the original British series — Mille, played by Rachel Stirling, and Jean, played by Julie Graham — traveling to the U.S. in 1956 to join forces with two U.S. code-breakers to tackle a string of new murder cases.
The Good Doctor’s Crystal Balint and The X-Files’ Ben Cotton have joined the cast of the eight-episode drama, which has just finished production and will launch next month. Zapped’s Chanelle Peloso and You, Me, Her’s Jennifer Spence also join the team of code-breakers.
