Michelle Monaghan is set to star in Ryan Murphy‘s new drama for HBO called “Open.” The “Source Code” actress will play Grace in the pilot for the drama that will explore sexuality, monogamy and intimacy within relationships.
Monaghan’s character will be a gynecologist who is successful and recently engaged. She joins four other main characters in the show — Scott Speedman, Wes Bentley, Anna Torv and Jennifer Jason Leigh. The show is expected to begin production early next year.
The actress has already found a temporary home at HBO. Monaghan stars alongside Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson in “True Detective,” an eight-episode drama that follows two detectives as they search for a serial killer. “True Detective” will begin airing in January 2014.
