Pushing Daisies star Anna Friel will play the younger sister of a cardinal in The Vatican, a drama pilot in the works at Showtime that’s described as a provocative contemporary genre thriller about spirituality, power and politics – set against the modern-day political machinations within the Catholic church.
Friel will play opposite Kyle Chandler, who’s set to depict Cardinal Duffy. Friel’s Kayla is a sexually active, hard-partying New Yorker who is openly rebellious against all norms and institutions, including the church.
