Apple TV+ has reportedly added a new cast member to the team for the upcoming Black Panther series The Big Cigar.

The new Apple TV+ show, which will tell the story of Black Panther leader Huey P. Newton’s escape to Cuba, has added Tiffany Boone to the mix according to a report by Deadline. Boone is known for her role in Hunters.

Apple TV+ announced the series earlier this year, but no release window has been given so far. Here’s how Apple described the six-part project at the time:

Apple TV+ today announced “The Big Cigar,” a new six-episode limited series produced and written by Jim Hecht (“Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty”), and executive produced and broadcast by award-winning Janine Sherman. NAACP Image Award Winner Barrois (“Claws,” “The Kings of Napa”), with Don Cheadle (“No Sudden Move,” “Black Monday,” “House of Lies”) on board to direct and produce the first two episodes, and based on the eponymous magazine article by Joshuah Bearman (“Argo”), who will also serve as executive producer. With André Holland (“The Eddy,” “Moonlight”) in talks to play Black Panthers leader Huey P. Newton, “The Big Cigar” tells the extraordinary, hilarious, and almost too good story of how Newton was based on his best friend, Bert Schneider, the Hollywood producer behind “Easy Rider,” to evade a nationwide manhunt and escape to Cuba while the FBI hunted him into exile.

Boone would play Gwen Fontaine, “Huey’s loyal girlfriend.”

Those familiar with Boone will know her as Roxy Jones, a role she plays in Hunters alongside Al Pacino. This is streaming on Amazon Prime Video, but will debut on Apple TV+. You’ll need an Apple TV+ subscription to watch it, though those with an Apple One subscription should be good to go too.
