The ‘Penny Dreadful’ actress plays crisis negotiator Maxine Carlson in the new series created by Frank Spotnitz, whose credits also include ‘X-Files’. The series enjoyed its premiere on New Year’s Day.

Greene’s character is one of a team of crisis negotiators in a cast which also includes Luke Roberts (Game of Thrones), Brandon Jay McLaren (Chicago Fire), Nazneen Contractor (Heroes Reborn) and Jenessa Grant (Orphan Black).

The show was filmed in Toronto and consists of a remaining twelve episodes directed by Richard J. Lewis and Erik Canuel.
