Quentin Plair & Nicola Peltz Join Hulu’s Limited Series ‘Immigrant’

Quentin Plair (The Good Lord Bird) will have a recurring role and Nicola Peltz (Transformers: Age of Extinction) will guest star in Hulu’s upcoming limited series “Immigrant (working title).”  They will join previously announced cast Kumail Nanjiani, Murray Bartlett (The White Lotus) and Annaleigh Ashford.

“Immigrant” follows the story of Banerjee (Kumail Nanjiani), the Indian-American entrepreneur who started the famed troop Chippendales. The show will detail the insane, darkly comedic, crime-ridden story behind the unique male revue that became a cultural phenomenon.

According to Deadline,

Plair will play Otis, the sole black dancer at Chippendales’ LA outpost until a dramatic falling-out with its owner Steve Banerjee (Nanjiani) over the club’s questionable admission policies regarding race.

Peltz will portray Dorothy Stratten. Both sexy and wholesome, Dorothy Stratten, who’s managed by her sleazy husband Paul Snider, was a Playboy Playmate, actress, and, least likely of all, a key player in the founding of the male strip club Chippendales.

The project hails from Pam & Tommy creator Robert Siegel.

Robert Siegel is the show’s writer and executive producer alongside Nanjiani, Dylan Sellers, Jenni Konner, Ramin Bahrani, Emily V. Gordon and Rajiv Joseph. Joseph will also write the show with Mehar Sethi.

Siegel and Konner serve as co-showrunners.  Jacqui Rivera is co-executive producer, Nora Silver is producer and Annie Wyman is co-producer.

20th Television serves as the studio on the series.

Plair has appeared on Showtime’s The Good Lord Bird, as well as Roswell: New Mexico.

Peltz is best known for her roles in Transformers: Age of Extinction and Bates Motel on A&E.

The series will also be coming to Disney+ Internationally including the U.K. and Canada, under the Star banner at a later date.
