Britney Spears fans know that her husband, Sam Asghari, likes to call her “my lioness.” So it’s only natural that he’d land a part in Special Ops: Lioness, the new spy series from Yellowstone franchise creator Taylor Sheridan.
On Thursday, Paramount+ revealed the trailer for the series, which stars Nicole Kidman alongside Morgan Freeman, Guardians of the Galaxy’s Zoe Saldaña and Laysla De Oliveira.
Based on a real-life CIA program, the show follows De Oliveira’s character, Cruz Manuelos, a Marine who’s recruited for the CIA’s Lioness Engagement Team to help bring down a terrorist organization.
Kidman plays the program’s supervisor and Saldaña plays Joe, the station chief who leads the female undercover operatives. According to the trailer, the Lioness team “locate[s] the wives and daughters of … high value targets … place[s] an operative close to them, and … kill[s] the target.”
Sam plays a character named Kamal and appears in four episodes. The series starts streaming July 23.
