Laura Dern has snagged her own TV series, where she will play a woman who has found spiritual re-awakening.

HBO’s ‘Enlightened’ will follow a character who goes from a life of chaos into one of spirituality and enlightenment – alternatively creating havoc in her home life.

The ‘Jurassic Park’ and ‘Wild At Heart’ film actress has dabbled in television in the past. She played Katherine Harris in HBO’s 2008 political movie, ‘Recount’ and received rave reviews.
