We've been keeping tabs on Fox's upcoming "event series" with a sinister slant "Wayward Pines", alerting you to the news that Matt Dillon and Melissa Leo had joined the cast of the M. Night Shyamalan-developed series. Today we have another name to add to the growing cast list.
Deadline is reporting that Carla Gugino has joined the cast of "Wayward Pines", set to take on the role of Kate Hewson - former love interest of Matt Dillon‘s Secret Service agent Ethan Burke.
Here's a refresher on the plot:
Ethan Burke (Dillon) is a Secret Service agent who arrives in the bucolic town of Wayward Pines, Id., on a mission to find two missing federal agents. But instead of answers, Ethan's investigation only turns up more questions. Each step closer to the truth takes Ethan further from the life he knew, from the husband and father he was, until he must face the terrifying reality that he may never get out of Wayward Pines alive.
"The Playboy Club" writer Chad Hodge penned the script, with Shyamalan, Hodge, Donald De Line and Ashwin Rajan on board to exec produce the FX Productions effort. Fox landed the project, based on a spec from Hodge, after a competitive bidding situation. Fox will bow the drama in 2014.
