EXCLUSIVE: Eric Winter is set to star opposite Tricia Helfer in TNT’s drama pilot Scent Of The Missing. The project, co-written/executive produced by CSI maven Carol Mendelsohn, Melissa R. Byer and Treena Hancock based on the book by Susannah Charleson, centers on Susannah (Helfer), a tenacious, strong-willed K-9 Search and Rescue volunteer who works with an equally determined partner — her mischievous golden retriever, Puzzle. Winter will play Jake, a member of the search and rescue team with his dog Shadow. Also executive producing the CBS TV Studios pilot is Barry Josephson. Winter, repped by UTA and Brillstein, is recurring on ABC’s midseason dramedy Good Christian Belles. He is coming off a major recurring role on CBS’ The Mentalist last season and recently shot the indie Fire With Fire opposite Josh Duhamel and Bruce Willis.
