The eight-episode thriller, previously titled Montauk, is set in the 1980s in the Long Island beach town and follows a 2-year-old boy who mysteriously vanishes into thin air.

Family, friends and cops try to uncover the truth about his disappearance, which ends up involving top-secret government experiments, supernatural forces and one very strange little girl.

Ryder will play Joyce, the working-class mother of the missing boy. She summons a strength she never she had before, while rescuing her son from terrifying forces. Ryder will co-star with State of Affairs alum David Harbour, who has been cast as the town’s chief of police. The series is set to debut in 2016. The project marks Ryder’s first series-regular role on TV.
