I’m always skeptical when celebrities get into the news for unusual reasons right around the time promotion is about to ramp up for one of their projects.
In the case of actress Kate Beckinsale, I am willing to overlook it. Because I love her.
So, with that in mind, and despite the amazing coincidence of her suddenly getting press for hanging out with Pete Davidson, I am more than psyched to see that her upcoming new series for Amazon Prime Video called The Widow looks so good.
Georgia Wells (Beckinsale) has her life turned upside-down with a phone-call in the middle of the night. Her husband of over 10 years, Will, has been reported dead after a plane crash in the Congolese jungle.
Three years later, with her old life now a thing of the past, Georgia learns something shocking. Something that will take her to Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, looking to uncover the truth about his disappearance.
Still haunted by the past, Georgia is grieving for the man she loved and the life they’ve lost, but she hasn’t given up hope.
Finally, someone willing to put Beckinsale back in a role where she gets to bring out some of her Underworld badassery.
Alex Kingston, Babs Olusanmokun, Charles Dance, Luiana Bonfim, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, and Jacky Ido will also star in the series.
