Netflix has signed up Stephanie Vogt to appear in the lead role for the upcoming spy drama series, Glória.
The series has been penned by Pedro Lopes and is to be directed by Tiago Guedes. Glória is set at the peak of the Cold War in the 1960s, in a small village called Glória do Ribatejo. That village is crucial because it is where RARET is located, a company owned by American broadcasters that spreads Western propaganda throughout the Eastern Bloc.
Deadline state, “João Vidal, an engineer from families linked to the Estado Novo, but recruited by the KGB, will take on several high-risk espionage missions that could change the course of Portuguese and world history. Vogt will play Anne. The wife of James, Anne comes from a wealthy and liberal family. She is a Harvard grad in International Relations, recruited by the CIA.”
The rest of the cast is mainly made up of Portuguese actors including Miguel Nunes, Carolina Amaral, Victoria Guerra, Afonso Pimentel, Adriano Luz, Joana Ribeiro, Marcelo Urgeghe, Sandra Faleiro, Carloto Cotta, Maria João Pinho, Inês Castel-Branco , Rafael Morais and Leonor Silveira.
Vogt has previously appeared in Entourage, the Cinemax-Sky series Strike Back and E!’s The Royals, and made an appearance alongside Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham in Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.
