Tom Hiddleston Starring In Political Thriller Series White Stork
He’s been busy reprising his role as Norse trickster Loki, shooting the Disney+ series named after the character, but Tom Hiddleston has his eye on another TV role. He’s now on board to star in new political thriller series White Stork for Netflix.
Christopher Dunlop created the series, which has an initial 10-episode order from the streaming service. With Taboo’s Kristoffer Nyholm directing, the show finds Hiddleston as James Cooper, a man selected to run for a seat in parliament. But when Asher Millan is sent to vet him for primetime, she quickly uncovers potentially damaging secrets buried deep in James’ past. Secrets that will threaten to blow everything apart – his career, his marriage, even the powerful people backing his campaign…
Hiddleston has not been a stranger to the small screen, even as his movie career heated up, since he’s appeared in the likes of the award-winning The Night Manager. As for Loki, the series should be on our screens next year, a little later than some of its MCU TV stablemates.
