Catherine Zeta-Jones Joins Disney+ ‘National Treasure’ Series


Catherine Zeta-Jones, who we recently loved in Prodigal Son, will be gracing our screens again soon thanks to Disney+.

The streamer is revisiting fan favorite National Treasure films in the form of a new series, with Zeta-Jones and Lisette Olivera as the show’s leads and Jerry Bruckheimer, the films’ producer, back as executive producer.

Set to expand on the films’ universe, the show explores the life of young heroine Jess (Olivera), a DREAMer in search of answers about her family, as she embarks on the adventure of a lifetime to uncover the truth about the past and save a lost Pan-American treasure. Her path crosses with Billie (Zeta-Jones), a badass billionaire, black-market antiquities expert, and treasure hunter who transformed herself from a penniless orphan to a shrewd, stylish businesswoman and adventurer. Both women want the Pan-American treasure, but for Billie the treasure has deeper stakes than just money.

Zeta-Jones joins Olivera and other previously announced series regulars including Lyndon Smith, Zuri Reed, Jake Austin Walker, Antonio Cipriano and Jordan Rodrigues.

LeeAnn is children's librarian who joined Nerds and Beyond in 2020 as a way to stretch her writing skills and connect with others who have the same pop culture passions as she does. She loves music, reading (obviously), and any TV show that can grab and hold her attention. Currently some of her favorite things to nerd out over include Supernatural, Prodigal Son, Louden Swain and Percy Jackson (books, theater, or upcoming show - lets leave the movies out of it).
