EXCLUSIVE: Ahna O’Reilly (The Help, Fruitvale Station) is set as the lead in the CW drama pilot Identity, exec produced by Alex Kurtzman and Bob Orci. Written by Corinne Brinkerhoff, Identity centers on Mia (O’Reilly), a grounded, whip-smart but restless young New Yorker who finds her world upended when she learns she needs an organ transplant to survive and her only living relative is a newfound half-brother from a wealthy and powerful family in Charleston, SC. She connects with the family only to find they’re the target of a CIA investigation, and the agency wants her as their newest informant. Her loyalty and morality are tested as she slowly builds a case against the family who saved her life. CBS Studios, K/O Paper Products and Scripted World are producing. O’Reilly is repped by WME, Luber Roklin and Felker Toczek.
