Ashley Judd has been cast as a series regular in the second season of the Epix series “Berlin Station,” Variety has learned.
“Berlin Station,” which stars Richard Armitage, Rhys Ifans, Richard Jenkins, Michelle Forbes and Leland Orser, is a contemporary spy drama that takes a look at the activity of a CIA office on a global stage in the midst of an investigation into a now-infamous whistleblower.
Judd will play BB Yates, Berlin’s disarming new Chief of Station, nicknamed “The Station Whisperer” for her itinerant work in the field shoring up CIA stations in moral or corporate disrepair. Part company loyalist and part maverick, BB toes a dangerous line between serving those above her and empowering those below her. Always a contradiction, she arrives in Berlin to defy expectations and breathe new life into the troubled CIA station she now runs.
