Quibi’s present-day update of Hollywood satire Swimming With Sharks is filling out its cast.

Thomas Dekker, Finn Jones and Donald Sutherland will star with Kiernan Shipka and Diane Kruger in the series at the short-form streaming platform. The series is based on George Huang’s cult 1994 movie about a Hollywood assistant (Frank Whaley) who turns the tables on his abusive boss (Kevin Spacey).

In the new version, penned by writer and actress Kathleen Robertson (Little Bee; Beverly Hills, 90210), a young woman named Lou (Shipka) goes to work for studio head Joyce (Kruger). In a company filled with manipulators, schemers and intrigue, no one knows Lou is poised to outwit them all.

Iron Fist and Game of Thrones alum Jones plays Marty, Joyce’s vp production, who’s also a victim of chronic verbal abuse. Marty is immediately taken by Lou and gets her a job as one of Joyce’s interns. Jones, who just wrapped season two of Dickinson for Apple, is repped by CAA, Atlas Artists, Curtis Brown Group and Felker Toczek.
