EXCLUSIVE: After an extensive search, the last pilot lead this season has been cast. Zachary Abel (Make It Or Brake It) has landed the lead role in the CW’s Mark Schwahn/J.J. Abrams drama pilot Shelter. Also cast in the Warner Bros TV-produced pilot is Malese Jow (The Vampire Diaries). Shelter is set at historic New England summer resort Shelter Bay where the new and returning staff attend to the practical, emotional and often comical needs of the guests while navigating friendships, rivalries and romances of their own. Abel, repped by APA and Caliber Media, will play the hopelessly romantic Mitchell Taylor, a 23-year-old former local baseball hero who now works the concierge desk at the Shelter Bay Inn. Jow, repped by Sweeney Entertainment and Todd Rubenstein, will play Morgan, Shelter Bay’s resident party girl.
