Catherine Zeta-Jones Joins Cast of Disney+ National Treasure Series

Disney+ has announced that Academy Award and Tony Award-winning actress Catherine Zeta-Jones will play a leading series regular role in the Disney+ original series "National Treasure".

The series will be part of the "National Treasure" franchise, which includes the films starring Nicolas Cage. It will follow the story of a young heroine, Jess (Lisette Alexis), a brilliant and resourceful dreamer who embarks on the adventure of a lifetime to uncover the truth about her family's mysterious past and save a lost Pan-American treasure.

Zeta-Jones will portray Billie, a billionaire, black-market antiquities expert, and treasure hunter who lives by her own code. She worked hard to go from a penniless orphan to a shrewd, stylish businesswoman and adventurer. She's also used to getting what she wants- and she wants the Pan-American treasure. But we find out that it's not just about the money.

The series also stars Zuri Reed ("Flatbush Misdemeanors") as Tasha, Jordan Rodrigues as Ethan ("Lady Bird"), Antonio Cipriano as Oren ("Jagged Little Pill" on Broadway"), and Jake Austin Walker ("Rectify") as Liam - Jess' friends whom she recruits to help uncover the truth about her parents and their connection to the treasure. Lyndon Smith ("Parenthood") stars as FBI Agent Ross who assists in the quest.

Jerry Bruckheimer, Cormac & Marianne Wibberley, Jonathan Littman, and KristieAnne Reed executive produce the series alongside Rick Muirragui, who also serves as a writer. Jon Turteltaub is also an executive producer. Mira Nair is directing and executive producing.
