Whoopi Goldberg will executive produce and play the lead character in “Strange,” a new science-fiction miniseries to debut next month on the Internet.
The Oscar-winning actress and co-host of ABC’s “The View” will star as Jodi, a woman trying to come to terms with her lifelong fears, reports Variety.
The series, airing in six five-minute weekly segments, will debut online at FEARnet.com and on video-on-demand beginning Jan. 15.
This will be the sixth original series for FEARnet, which is a joint venture between Comcast, Sony Pictures Television and Lionsgate. VOD is available on Comcast, Time Warner and Cox cable operators.
