Meet The Cast Of “Under The Banner Of Heaven”

It isn’t exactly a shocker for FX to produce quality, edge-of-your-seat content, but its latest offering, Under the Banner of Heaven, is simply just on a whole new level. The upcoming true-crime drama TV miniseries is created by Dustin Lance Black, who wrote the movie Milk, for which he won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay. Now he’s focusing his creative juices on this show, which is adapted from the nonfiction book of the same name by writer and mountaineer Jon Krakauer. Under the Banner of Heaven is set to premiere on April 28, 2022. The miniseries will be directed by David Mackenzie and Isabel Sandoval. The plot of the miniseries is as follows: “A devout detective’s faith is tested as he investigates a brutal murder seemingly connected to an esteemed Utah family’s spiral into LDS fundamentalism and their distrust in the government.” Under the Banner of Heaven features some of the most bankable figures in Hollywood today. If you want to learn more about the performers expected to appear in the miniseries, look no further.
