TVLine Items: Evangeline Lilly's Vudu Series, Vida Season 2 Trailer and More
Evangeline Lilly is getting lost again — this time in space.
TV’s erstwhile Kate Austen (and the MCU’s Hope Pym) has snagged the lead role in Albedo, a sci-fi drama ordered at the Walmart-owned VOD service Vudu.
Set 150 years in the future, Albedo centers on Det. Vivien Coleman (Lilly), who finds herself trapped and cut off from Earth while investigating a scientist’s mysterious death aboard an isolated space station. She’s joined by the station’s small crew… all of whom are secret-harboring murder suspects.
Albedo marks Lilly’s first major TV role since starring as Lost‘s Kate from 2004 to 2010.
