Molly Parker To Play Lead Role In Lost In Space

House of Cards actress Molly Parker will portray Maureen Robinson in the reboot of the 1960’s science fiction series from Netflix.

Portrayed by June Lockhart in the original TV show, Maureen Robinson is remembered by fans as the matriarch of the family that finds itself stuck on an unknown planet where they try to find their way home. Also set to star in the production are Maxwell Jenkins, Taylor Russell, and Black SailsToby Stephens, who will play John Robinson, the husband of Parker’s character:

Created by Irwin Allen, the original Lost in Space premiered on CBS in 1965 and went on to last for three seasons and 85 episodes. The series focused on the intergalactic adventures of The Robinson family, who were originally sent into the stars aboard the Jupiter 2 for colonization, but the vessel was sabotaged by the backstabbing Dr. Zachary Smith, whose efforts to disrupt the trip resulted in the clan being stranded in the cosmos.

Zack Estrin serves as executive producer on the new Lost in Space alongside Sazama and Sharpless as well as Synthesis Entertainment’s Kevin Burns (The Curse of Oak Island, Ancient Aliens) and Jon Jashni (Godzilla, Pacific Rim) and Applebox’s Emmy-nominated director Neil Marshall (Game of Thrones, The Descent) and Marc Helwig. Marshall is also set to direct several episodes of the series.
