Emmy winner and Tony nominee Colman Domingo has been tapped to star in Netflix's newest limited series, The Madness.

The series, produced by Chernin Entertainment as a part of their first look deal with the streaming giant, positions Domingo as media pundit Muncie Daniels, who struggles to fight for both his life and his innocence when the walls of a conspiracy theory close in around him and his estranged family.

The conspiracy thriller is the newest in a programming shift from Netflix, that has seen greater attention put toward limited-run productions rather than open ended programming. The Madness will consist of eight episodes, under the helm of showrunners Stephen Belber (O.G., The Laramie Project) and VJ Boyd (Justified, S.W.A.T.)

Said Peter Friedlander, vice president of scripted series for Netflix in the U.S. and Canada: "The Madness is a fresh take on the conspiracy thriller—turning the genre on its head with its multi-layered characters, propulsive action, and swift pace. We are proud to have such a powerhouse team assembled to bring this dynamic story to life for Netflix viewers around the world, and to continue producing great entertainment with team Chernin."

Additional casting and updates on a production timeline are forthcoming.
