Naian Gonzalez Norvind is feeling devilish…
The part-Mexican actress has been cast in the HBO drama pilot The Devil You Know (working title).
Co-written by Orange Is The New Black creator Jenji Kohan, Bruce Miller and Tracy Miller, the project is described as a provocative period drama. The Devil You Know explores the circumstances around one of the most compelling chapters in American history — the infamous Salem Witch Trials in 17th century New England, where intolerance and repression set neighbor against neighbor and led a town to mass hysteria.
Norvind will portray Samuel Parris’ niece.
Production on the pilot — a co-production between HBO and Lionsgate Television — is slated to take place in Boston in the spring.
