Your city is under occupation by alien-backed forces: do you collaborate and benefit from the new order or rebel and suffer the consequences? That’s the stark choice facing MCM special guest Amanda Righetti’s character in Colony, a hot new sci-fi series set in a dystopian, near-future Los Angeles.
Amanda plays Maddie Kenner, younger sister of Resistance operative Katie Bowman (Sarah Wayne Callies). Maddie’s son Hudson is diabetic; a condition that the occupying Transitional Authority has deemed ‘unworthy for treatment’ in order to cull weakness from the herd. Created by Lost‘s Carlton Cuse and Hercules‘ Ryan Condal, Colony has already been picked up for a second season, due to air in 2017.
Apart from Colony, Amanda Righetti is best known for her role as rookie special agent Grace Van Pelt in CBS police drama The Mentalist. She has also appeared in Captain America: The First Avenger, Friday the 13th and as Hailey Nichol in The O.C.
