The Big Bang Theory star will play the lead role in forthcoming HBO Max series The Flight Attendant.

Kaley will appear as flight attendant Cassandra Bowden, who wakes up hungover in a Dubai hotel room beside a dead body with no recollection of how it got there.

Suspecting she might be the killer, a shaken Cassandra boards a flight back to New York where she is met by FBI agents, who have a couple of questions about her recent Dubai layover.

The eight-part series is based on the novel of the same name by Chris Bohjalian, and it’s now been confirmed that the first three episodes will be made available to stream on HBO Max on Thursday, November 26 (Thanksgiving in the US).

The Flight Attendant also features Girls actress Zosia Mamet, Game of Thrones and The Haunting of Hill House star Michiel Huisman, and Rosie Perez.
