EXCLUSIVE: USA Network has cast Jennifer Finnigan as the female lead in its pilot Wild Card, lifting the contingency on the project. The Fox TV Studios-produced project is about people behaving badly at night in Las Vegas and two very different lawyers, Will Garratt (Ben Lawson) and Eliza Evans (Finnigan), who solve their problems before morning. Finnigan co-starred on ABC’s sitcom Better With You last season. Edi Gathegi already had been cast as the duo’s resourceful investigator. Stephen Godchaux wrote the pilot and is executive producing with Cary Brokaw. With the contingency lifted, Wild Card joins the other USA pilots Over/Under, which has not yet been shot, and Common Law and Eden, which have been shot.
