Last month, Netflix announced new limited series Zero Day, a conspiracy thriller starring Academy Award winner Robert De Niro in his first ever TV series. Today, Netflix announced additional cast members joining the series: Emmy Award Nominee Lizzy Caplan (Fleishman Is in Trouble, Fatal Attraction), Academy Award Nominee Jesse Plemons (Power of The Dog, Fargo), Three Time Academy Award Nominee Joan Allen (The Bourne Ultimatum, The Contender), and Five Time Emmy Award Nominee Connie Britton (White Lotus, Friday Night Lights).

Zero Day Logline: Zero Day asks the question on everyone’s mind — how do we find truth in a world in crisis, one seemingly being torn apart by forces outside our control? And in an era rife with conspiracy theory and subterfuge, how much of those forces are products of our own doing, perhaps even of our own imagining? 

Character Descriptions

Lizzy Caplan as Alexandra Mullen: A young  Congresswoman who has sought to distance herself from her father’s political legacy.

Jesse Plemons as Roger Carlson: Former Mullen “body man” seeking a return to the national stage alongside Mullen.

Joan Allen as Sheila Mullen: Former First Lady and nominee to the federal bench whose professional ambitions take a backseat to her husband’s political career.

Connie Britton as Valerie Whitesell: A savvy, intelligent political operative who was Mullen’s former Chief of Staff.

Robert De Niro leads the cast as George Mullen: A massively popular, but complicated, former American President who is pulled from retirement to head a commission tasked with investigating a devastating global cyber-attack.

Netflix previously announced the new limited series Zero Day, a conspiracy thriller from Creator / Executive Producer Eric Newman under his Grand Electric Productions deal with Netflix, and Creator / Executive Producer Noah Oppenheim.
