Gossip Girl‘s Jessica Szohr is returning to the CW with a starring role in Kevin Williamson’s untitled paranormal drama pilot, and I hear she also has booked a role on David Lynch’s Twin Peaks revival for Showtime. Additionally, Longmire alum Bailey Chase has been tapped as the male lead in Williamson’s pilot. (Coincidentally, he also is doing a gig on the new Twin Peaks installment.)
Written by Williamson and directed by David Nutter, the CW pilot is about a young woman who seeks help from a parapsychologist (Chase) when she begins to experience paranormal phenomena.
Chase’s Clark Patterson is a once-successful parapsychologist who is now just an attraction at local ghost conventions. But when he meets a mysterious young woman, everything begins to change.
Szohr plays Jasmine Lacroix. The granddaughter of a voodoo priestess, she has turned her heritage into a successful tourist shop in Baton Rouge.
Williamson and Nutter executive produce, and Lauren Wagner is a producer for Warner Bros. TV and Williamson’s Outerbanks Entertainment.
Chase, repped by APA and Untitled, has been recurring on NBC’s Grimm. Szohr, recently seen in the feature Ted 2 and TV series Kingdom, is repped by Atlas Artists and ICM Partners.
