Alona Tal (Burn Notice) is set as a regular in Amazon Studios‘ pilot Hand Of God, written by Ben Watkins and directed by Marc Forster. It centers on the powerful Judge Harris Pernell (Ron Perlman), a hard-living, law-bending married man with a high-end call girl on the side who has a religious awakening and starts having visions and hearing voices through his ventilator-bound son that could be God speaking to him. Tal, repped by Innovative and McKeon Myones, will play Pernell’s daughter-in-law Jocelyn.
