Diane Lane will star in FX?s drama pilot, ?Y: The Last Man? alongside Barry Keoghan, the network announced on Wednesday.
The cast also includes Imogen Poots, Lashana Lynch, Juliana Canfield and Marin Ireland.
The long-in-the-works project is based on Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra?s DC comic book series of the same name, which traverses a post-apocalyptic world in which a cataclysmic event has decimated every male mammal save for one lone human. The new world order of women will explore gender, race, class and survival.
Lane will play Senator Jennifer Brown, an ambitious junior senator who has already made a name for herself in political circles for her willingness to put personal ideals above politics. She is also the mother of Yorick (Keoghan) and Hero Brown (Poots).
