Auli'i Cravalho To Co-Star In Amazon Series THE POWER

Auli'i Cravalho To Co-Star In Amazon Series THE POWER
"The Little Mermaid Live!" star Auli'i Cravalho has signed on to star in the upcoming Amazon thriller drama series "The Power" based on Naomi Alderman's sci-fi novel of the same name.

The 10-episode show is set in a world where teenage girls develop the power to electrocute people at will. The ability is hereditary, and the girls rapidly learn that they can awaken the Power in older women. Soon enough nearly every woman in the world can do it.

The story follows a series of characters including Allie, a vulnerable American foster kid who reinvents herself as a faith leader; Roxy, the daughter of a London crime boss, who revels in her new abilities; Tunde, a Nigerian journalist reporting on seismic global change; and Margot Cleary-Lopez (Leslie Mann), Mayor of Seattle; loving wife and doting mother to three kids. At least that's what her official campaign website would tell you.

Cravalho will play Margot's daughter, Jos. As Margot's career takes flight, it's her husband Rob and daughter Jos who privately feel the effects of her success most keenly; for one of them, where previously there was conflict now comes a greater understanding, and for the other where there was love, comes hurt and betrayal.

Alderman created the series and also penned the script, working alongside an all-female writers' room. She will also serve as an executive producer alongside Reed Morano, who is directing.

Cravalho is currently in production as the lead of the Netflix film "Sorta Like a Rock Star".
