The Nine Lives Of Chloe King star Skyler Samuels has landed the lead of NBC‘s drama pilot Bloodline, playing another teen girl warrior. Written by David Graziano and directed by Peter Berg, Bloodline is described as a pulpy, highly stylized look into the cheeky world of Bird Benson (Samuels), a smart, irreverent and strong young girl who, due to an accident of birth, finds herself caught in the middle of an epic struggle between two warrior families set against the backdrop of modern suburbia. The character echoes Samuel’s Chloe on the ABC Family series, who was a descendant of an ancient race and became a warrior trying to stop the war between that race and humans. On Bloodline, Samuels, repped by UTA, Brillstein Entertainment and attorney Tom Hoberman, joins Breaking Bad‘s Jonathan Banks who plays her maternal grandfather.
