The series is based on the National Treasure movie franchise with Nicolas Cage and follows Jess, a DREAMer searching for answers about her family as she goes on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure to find the truth about the past and recover a lost Pan-American treasure.
According to Deadline, Catherine Oscar winner Zeta-Jones will play Billie, a badass billionaire, a black-market antiquities expert, and treasure hunter who lives by her own code. She went from being a poor orphan to a shrewd, fashionable entrepreneur and adventurer. Billie is used to getting what she wants, and the Pan-American treasure is no exception.
Zeta-Jones joins other series regulars Lyndon Smith, Zuri Reed, Jake Austin Walker, Antonio Cipriano, and Jordan Rodrigues.
The Wibberleys wrote the pilot episode of National Treasure, which will be directed by Mira Nair. Production is set to begin this month in Baton Rouge.
