The series,written and executive produced by Gillian Flynn,explores the danger that ensues when fiction and reality collide.

The show, inspired by the British series of the same name, follows a group of comic book fans hoping to avoid the end of humanity after finding clues about world destruction and biological warfare hidden in the pages of the titular series.

The trailer for the new Amazon show sees the group of conspiracy theorists, played by Borges, Ashleigh LaThrop, Dan Byrd, Jessica Rothe and Javon Walton, face additional threats from government leaders and health industry giants, as if the threat of fatal diseases wasn’t already intimidating enough.

“We can fight it, we’d just be going into the bell of the beast, practically begging to be slaughtered,” Rainn Wilson, who plays the show’s Dr. Michael Stearns.

Additional actors joining the Utopia cast are John Cusak, Sasha Lane, Farrah Mackenzie, Christopher Denham and Cory Michael Smith.

Damien Chazelle’s musical, set in contemporary Los Angeles, stars Ryan Gosling as a jazz pianist and Emma Stone as the aspiring actress he falls in love with. The catch: the city that brought them together may tear them apart, as they soon discover that balancing love and art in such a cutthroat climate isn’t easy.

Hernandez, who has appeared in Robert Rodriguez’s Machete Kills and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, has been cast as on of Stone’s three roommates. The other two roommates will be played by Sonoya Mizuno and Jessica Rothe.

La La Land has already secured a July 15, 2016 release date.

The film originally had Miles Teller and Emma Watson in the works to star. Teller and Chazelle had teamed on Whiplash, and the writer-director penned La La Land before that movie, which landed a Best Picture nomination last year and won him the Adapted Screenplay Oscar. But Teller moved on and Lionsgate scooped up Gosling and Stone in April.

Hernandez’s other credits include television appearances on From Dusk Till Dawn and Members Only. She’ll next star in the upcoming film Cover Girl.
