Octavia Spencer and Hannah Waddingham are to team up for a new action-adventure series at Prime Video.

The series will see Waddingham play Judith, who has secretly been working as a highly trained assassin. That’s a double life that Judith’s best friend Debbie (played by Spencer) knows nothing about — until a hit goes wrong. Now Judith and Debbie are on the run, aiming to stay one step ahead of a mysterious enemy. And while they try to figure out what’s going on, they also have to fix their now-ruptured friendship.

Based on an original idea by exec producer Tessa Coates, Skydance Television is behind the show, along with Andy and Barbara Muschietti’s Double Dream shingle and Spencer’s Orit Entertainment. The untitled series will produce eight episodes for Prime Video across the world.

Coates will executive produce the series with Spencer, Brian Clisham and Stephanie Kluft for Orit Entertainment; Waddingham; Andy Muschietti, Barbara Muschietti and Irene Yeung for Double Dream; and David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Matt Thunell for Skydance Television. Mark Mikutowicz and Blair Bigelow developed the project for Skydance.

Waddingham can currently be heard as a voice in Fox’s ‘Krapopolis’ and seen in the Apple TV+ special ‘Hannah Waddingham: Home for Christmas.’

Spencer starred in (and exec produced) the critically acclaimed series ‘Truth Be Told.’
