French actress Lizzie Brocheré (American Horror Story: Asylum) has been cast as the female lead opposite David Ajala in USA drama pilot Falling Water, a supernatural thriller from the late Henry Bromell (Homeland), Brotherhood creator Blake Masters and The Walking Dead executive producer Gale Anne Hurd.
Written and co-created by Masters and Bromell and directed by Carlos Fresnadillo, Falling Water, from Universal Cable Prods., is described as a mind-bending thriller intersecting reality and unconscious thoughts. It tells the story of three unrelated people — Burton (Ajala), Taka and Tess (Brocheré) — who slowly realize that they are dreaming separate parts of a single common dream. Each is on a quest for something that can only be found in their subconscious. However, the more they begin to use the dream world as a tool to advance their hidden agendas, they realize that their visions are trying to tell them something and that their very real lives are at stake. Tess is a cutting edge trend spotter with an uncanny ability to predict the next big thing, who is haunted by nightly dreams of an absent child.
Brocheré, repped by ICM Partners, Mosaic, UK’s Conway van Gelder Grant and France’s Film Talents, recurs on the second season of FX’s vampire drama The Strain. She has wrapped production on the ten-hour Canal Plus miniseries Versailles and will be seen in Full Contact.
