The Handmaid's Tale - Madeline Brewer Joins Hulu Series

Share on Reddit

Hemlock Grove alum Madeline Brewer has joined the cast of the streaming service's take on Margaret Atwood's book of the same name, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Picked up straight to series, the 10-episode drama stars Mad Men's Elisabeth Moss and tells the story of life in the dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly part of the U.S. Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birthrate, Gilead is ruled by a twisted fundamentalism that treats women as property of the state. As one of the few remaining fertile women, Offred (Moss) is a handmaid in the commander's household, one of the caste of women forced into sexual servitude as a last desperate attempt to repopulate a devastated world. She is forced to navigate between commanders, their cruel wives, domestic "Marthas" (servants) and her fellow handmaids — where anyone could be a spy for Gilead — all with one goal: to survive and find the daughter who was taken from her.

Brewer will play Janine, a ballsy fellow handmaid Offred (Moss) meets in the Red Center who, after a torturous punishment, begins losing her grasp on reality.
