Netflix has ordered eight episodes of Colman Domingo's conspiracy thriller The Madness.

According to Variety, the star – known for his roles on Fear the Walking Dead and Euphoria – will play media pundit Muncie Daniels, who ends up on the run.

After coming across a murder in the Poconos woods, Muncie must "fight for his innocence and his life" and hopes to reconnect with his estranged family in order to survive.
