Julia Stiles has joined the cast of new NBC pilot Midnight Sun.

It has been adapted from an Israeli show by FlashForward writer Lisa Zwerling, and tells the story of a mysterious disappearance within a commune in Alaska.

According to TV Line, Stiles will star as an FBI cult specialist named Leah Kafka, investigating a conspiracy surrounding the disappearance.

Emma Bell, known for her work on The Walking Dead, has also signed on to play the daughter of the cult leader, played by Titus Welliver. Rounding out the cast is Michael Raymond-James, who stars as an Alaskan police officer.

This will be Stiles's first role as a series regular. She previously did a run on Showtime's Dexter, where she played a serial killer.

Stiles just wrapped filming on the romantic comedy It's A Disaster, and is also gearing up to star in an adaptation of The Bell Jar.
