Betsy Brandt and Michael Park have joined the cast of Hulu’s psychological drama “Saint X.”

The series is described as a psychological drama told in multiple timelines and perspectives. It is about a young woman’s mysterious death during an idyllic Caribbean vacation and how it creates a traumatic ripple effect that eventually pulls her surviving sister into a dangerous pursuit of the truth.

According to Deadline, Brandt and Park will play Mia Thomas and Bill Thomas, respectively, in the eight-episode series adapted from Alexis Schaitkin’s novel. The characters are upper middle class parents of two, enjoying a family vacation in a Caribbean resort until one of their daughters goes missing.

They join the previously announced cast including Alycia Debnam-Carey (Fear the Walking Dead)  who replaced previous lead Victoria Pedretti after she exited the series due to creative differences. The series also stars  Josh Bonzie (The Politician),  West Duchovny (Linoleum) and Jayden Elijah (School’s Out Forever).

The show has received an eight-episode order from Hulu. Leila Gerstein (The Handmaid’s Tale, Looking for Alaska) will pen the script and executive produce the adaptation. Dee Rees (Mudbound) is attached to direct and executive produce. Schaitkin, Stephen Williams, Anonymous Content, and DreamCrew Entertainment will also executive produce.

ABC Signature is the studio.

Filming on the series is currently underway in the Dominican Republic.
