According to Deadline, Boone will star alongside Nicole Kidman, Melissa McCarthy, and Melvin Gregg in the series based on Big Little Lies author Liane Moriarty’s latest book.

The series takes place at a boutique health-and-wellness resort, Tranquillum, that promises healing and transformation as nine stressed city dwellers try to get on a path to a better way of living. Watching over them during this ten-day retreat is the resort’s director, Masha (played by Kidman), a woman on a mission to reinvigorate their tired minds and bodies.

Boone will play Delilah, one of the resort’s employees. Luke Evans, Samara Weaving, and Grace Van Patten have nabbed roles as well.

Boone continues to win on her own terms. She’s currently starring in Jordan Peele’s Hunters on Amazon and blew us away with her mesmerizing role in Little Fires Everywhere. She’s set to star in George Clooney‘s upcoming sci-fi-fi flick, The Midnight Sky.

Tiffany Boone recently opened up about navigating Hollywood during an exclusive conversation with theGrio.

“The price has gone up. And it should be going up for all of us because the truth is, you haven’t been paying us what you owe and we’ve gone along with it for whatever reason different people go along with it,” she said. “But at the end of the day… if because I’m the Black woman I’m getting paid the least, that’s not good work for me anymore. And you’re not going to trick me into it. My agents know where I stand, my managers know too.”
