Victoria Pedretti to Star in Hulu Drama Series ‘Saint X’

Victoria Pedretti has signed on for a lead role in upcoming Hulu drama series ‘Saint X,’ Variety has learned.

The series is based on Alexis Schaitkin’s novel of the same name. It is described as a psychological drama, which is told via multiple timelines and perspectives. It’s a show about how the mysterious death of a young woman during an idyllic Caribbean vacation creates a traumatic ripple effect that ultimately drags her surviving sister on a dangerous pursuit of the truth.

Pedretti will play the role of Emily, a sharp and ambitious woman whose carefully constructed and seemingly perfect life begins to fall apart.

This is the last major streaming TV role for Pedretti. She most recently appeared as Love Quinn across several seasons of the hit Netflix series “You,” including the third season which dropped in October. She is perhaps best known for starring in the Netflix series ‘The Haunting of Hill House’ as well as the sequel series ‘The Haunting of Bly Manor’. She is also known for starring in Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood.”

It is replaced by Gersh, Management 360, Rogers & Cowan PMK and Sloane Offer.

“Saint X” received an eight-episode order from Hulu. Leila Gerstein will write and produce the adaptation. Gerstein previously worked on the Hulu shows “The Handmaid’s Tale” and “Looking for Alaska.” Dee Rees is committed to direct and executive products. Schaitkin, Stephen Williams, David Levine and Zack Hayden of Anonymous Content, Adel “Future” Nur and Jason Shrier of Dreamcrew Entertainment, and Steve Pearlman will also serve as executive producers. ABC Signature is the studio.
