Actor Diane Lane has been cast in the pilot of FX's "Y", a drama series based on DC comic book series "Y: The Last Man".
The Oscar-nominated actor will be joined by Barry Keoghan, Imogen Poots, Lashana Lynch, Juliana Canfield and Marin Ireland in the adaptation, reported Variety.
The dystopian sci-fi comics series, created by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra, is about a mass extinction that leaves a man and his pet monkey as the only male mammals still alive on Earth. Together, they're left to navigate a post-apocalyptic society run entirely by women.
In the pilot, which will be directed by Melina Matsoukas, Lane will portray Senator Jennifer Brown, the mother of Yorick (Keoghan) and Hero (Poots).
Michael Green and Aida Mashaka Croal will serve as co-showrunners on the project.
Matsoukas will also serve as an executive producer on the pilot alongside Vaughan Green, Croal, Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson.
