The newly announced cast joins previously announced Academy Award® winner Sir Ben Kingsley, two-time Academy Award nominee Jacki Weaver, Jimmi Simpson, Luis Guzman, and Kurtwood Smith.

Our Lady, LTD follows James (Simpson), a young grifter, as he attempts to prey upon Pastor Byron Brown (Kingsley), who turns out to be far more dangerous than he suspects. The pastor and his wife Lillian (Weaver)—known to their parishioners as Pa and Ma—have used religion to bilk hundreds of innocent people out of their life savings.
Herriman will play Paul Allen Brown, the wayward son of Pa and Ma, and architect of a scheme to fleece his own parents out of millions with partner James (Simpson). Conrad will play New Leaf, a former convict whose attempt at legitimacy via small business ownership is thwarted by Ma and Pa. Losing everything, he directs that violence and intensity toward hunting the stranger he believes to be responsible – the same identity James just assumed. Herriman and Conrad have been cast as series regulars. O’Quinn, in a recurring role, will star as Tom Walker, a Texas Ranger whose investigation into the death of a young girl lands him in Half Acre where his primary suspect, Paul, has resurfaced. Lee, in a guest starring role, will play Scotty Sholes, the accountant for Our Lady of Perpetual Grace who has access to the church’s financial records after Ma and Pa go missing and becomes a dangerous obstacle for James.
Along with Conrad and Terris as executive producers are Escape Artists’ Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch.”
