Y: The Last Man

Diane Lane is set to co-star in FX’s drama pilot Y, an adaptation of the critically-acclaimed comic Y: The Last Man. FX announced that Lane will play Jennifer Brown in the series, joining Barry Keoghan (Yorick), Imogen Poots (Hero), Lashana Lynch (Agent 355), Juliana Canfield (Beth), and Marin Ireland (Sneaky Pete) in the series.

Lane’s role of Jennifer is a first-term junior senator who has already made a name for herself in political circles for her willingness to put personal ideals ahead of politics. She is also the mother of protagonist Yorick Brown and his sister, Hero.

The series has been in development for three years at FX before getting a pilot order. It is set in a post-apocalyptic world where a cataclysmic event has decimated every male mammal, save for one lone human (and his pet monkey). Together, they’re left to navigate a society run entirely by women, through which they explore gender, race, class and survival. Michael Green (Logan) wrote the pilot and will serve as co-showrunner along with Aida Mashaka Croal (Jessica Jones, Luke Cage). Melina Matsoukas (Insecure) will direct.
