Goldsberry — known for her TV roles on The Good Wife and One Life to Live, the latter earning her two Daytime Emmy nominations — will move on to Altered Carbon, Netflix’s 10-episode sci-fi drama from Skydance Television starring Joel Kinnaman.

Set in the 25th century and based on Richard Morgan's 2002 novel of the same name, the series explores what happens when the human mind becomes digitized and the soul is transferable from one body to another. Kinnaman plays Takeshi Kovacs, an ex-elite interstellar warrior known as an Envoy who has been imprisoned for 500 years and is downloaded into a future he had tried to stop. If he can solve a single murder in a world where technology has made death nearly obsolete, he will get a chance at a new life on Earth.

Goldsberry will play the role of Quellcrist Falconer, a revolutionary and leader of the rebellion against the Protectorate. She is a master strategist, as well as the love of Kovacs' life. 

Laeta Kalogridis (Avatar, Shutter Island) will write, executive produce and serve as showrunner. Skydance's David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, Marcy Ross and Steve Blackman also exec produce alongside Kalogridis' Mythology Entertainment partners Brad Fischer and James Vanderbilt. Miguel Sapochnik (Game of Thrones) will direct the premiere episode.
