Sheila Vand (Argo, NBC’s State Of Affairs) is set as a series regular opposite Corey Hawkins, Miranda Otto and Jimmy Smits in 24: Legacy, Fox’s drama pilot that reboots the 24 franchise with brand new characters and cast.

Written by 24 veterans Manny Coto and Evan Katz and directed by Stephen Hopkins (who helmed the original 24 pilot), 24: Legacy chronicles the return of military hero Eric Carter (Hawkins) to the U.S. and the trouble that follows him back – compelling him to ask CTU for help in saving his life, and stopping what potentially could be one of the largest-scale terror attacks on American soil.

Vand will play Nilaa, the campaign director of Sen. Donovan (Smits) who is driven and bright and won’t take a back seat to the judgment of Donovan’s wife, Rebecca (Otto). Teddy Sears and Anna Diop also co-star.

24: Legacy is executive produced by Howard Gordon, Coto, Katz and Brian Grazer through 20th Century Fox TV, Imagine TV and Gordon’s Teakwood Lane Productions.  

Vand, currently seen in the comedy feature Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, is repped by Paradigm.
