One Tree Hill and Dexter alum Bethany Joy Lenz has been tapped as the female lead opposite Andrew Buchan in TNT’s drama pilot from writer Aron Eli Coleite and Jerry Bruckheimer TV. Rounding out the cast of the thriller are Bruce Greenwood (Thirteen Days) and Benito Martinez (The Shield), Nicole Muñoz (Defiance), and Roberta Colindrez (Birdman). In addition to Buchan, they join previously announced JoBeth Williams, Harris Dickinson and Sawyer Barth.
Home delves into the secrets lingering behind the façade of a seemingly idyllic suburban family. Rose Bell (Lenz) couldn’t be happier: An accomplished designer with a successful business, the newly pregnant Rose is thriving in a wonderful life with her husband, Joe (Buchan), a highly regarded prison psychologist, and enjoying being a stepmother to his two sons PK (Dickinson) and Nate (Barth). But her image of her perfect family is shattered when she discovers long-buried secrets that threaten to destroy the very foundation of her life.
Greenwood is Leonard, a charismatic, brilliant behavioral psychiatrist working in an unnerving field to discover the cause of and cure for sociopathy. But his experiments were so controversial, his career ended in disgrace. Martinez, repped by SDB Partners, is prison Warden Peter Ochoa, a former uniformed cop who doesn’t believe in rehabilitation and parole, which puts him in direct opposition to prison psychologist Joe, who is determined to prove that even the most sociopathic criminals are capable of redemption. Muñoz plays Danica, a latch-key girl next door who instigates a love triangle when she falls for both her new neighbors, PK and Nate Bell. Colindrez is Cassie, Rose’s best friend and business partner, a contractor who brings Rose’s design to life.
Home is being produced by Jerry Bruckheimer Television in association with Warner Horizon Television, with Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman serving as executive producers alongside Coleite, and Brad Anderson, who will direct. KristieAnne Reed is co-executive producer.
Lenz is repped by Gersh, John Carrabino Management and attorney Adam Kaller.
