“Parks and Recreation” alum Nick Offerman and “GLOW” star Betty Gilpin have boarded the cast of the upcoming historical drama series “Death by Lightning”.

The project hails from Netflix and will be directed by Matt Ross, reported entertainment news outlet Variety.

Based on Candice Millard’s novel “Destiny of the Republic”, the show will follow the assassination of James Garfield, the 20th US president, by Charles Guiteau.

Offerman and Gilpin join previously announced leads Michael Shannon (“The Shape of Water”), who will play James Garfield and “Succession” star Matthew Macfadyen, who will portray the role of Guiteau in “Death By Lightning”.

Offerman, also known for films such as “The Founder” and “The Kings of Summer”, will essay Chester A Arthur, James Garfield’s vice president and eventual successor.

On the other side, Gilpin will star as Crete Garfield, the First Lady and James Garfield’s wife. The series marks her return to Netflix after “GLOW”.

“Game of Thrones” creators David Benioff and DB Weiss serve as executive producers on “Death By Lightning”.
