Geneva Carr (Love & Other Drugs) is set as a series regular in CBS drama pilot Bull, from Amblin TV and CBS TV Studios. Written by Phil McGraw and Paul Attanasio, Bull is based on popular daytime talk show host Dr. Phil McGraw’s early days as head of one of the most prolific trial consulting services of all time. Carr will play Marissa, a psychologist, neurolinguistics expert and licensed sex therapist working on Dr. Bull’s (not yet cast) team. Carr recently recurred on Law & Order: SVU and Younger. She’s repped by Abrams Artists Agency.
Kurt Egyiawan (Beasts of No Nation) has been cast as a series regular in Fox drama pilot The Exorcist, a modern reinvention inspired by William Blatty’s 1971 book. Written by Jeremy Slater, The Exorcist is described as a propulsive, serialized psychological thriller following two very different men tackling one family’s case of horrifying demonic possession and confronting the face of true evil. Egyiawan, repped by Gersh and Lou Coulson Associates, will play Father Bennett, a liaison for the Vatican.
