Annabelle Dexter-Jones has booked Prototype, Syfy’s sci-fi thriller drama pilot written by Tony Basgallop (24: Live Another Day). It centers on three unlikely cohorts who inadvertently stumble upon an invention that challenges the very nature of quantum physics – a discovery which in turn puts their lives in grave danger. Dexter-Jones will play Donna Neuring, a young coder and math whiz whose help has been enlisted to bring a potentially momentous invention to life. But while Donna may be the key to getting a working prototype, her home life is anything but functional. Dexter-Jones recently appeared in Ava’s Possessions opposite Jemima Kirke, #Horror with Chloë Sevigny and Natasha Lyonne and White Girl, which premiered at Sundance in January. Dexter-Jones is repped by Gersh and Authentic.
