Former Nikita star Lyndsy Fonseca and up-and-comer Elizabeth Cappuccino (Jessica Jones) have been cast as two of the leads of Syfy’s supernatural horror drama pilot The Haunted.

Written by Noga Landau (Tau, The Magicians), The Haunted centers on four siblings – Juno (Fonseca), Virgil, Eliis and Hester (Cappuccino) — who reunite following their parents’ deaths. As they try to overcome their fractured personal relationships they find that they must also face the literal ghosts from their past in order to survive.

Fonseca’s Juno Bradley is a woman of science who is forced to come to terms with a new perspective on the world after she realizes she can no longer rely on facts alone. Cappuccino’s Hester Bradley, Juno’s sister, is searching for a purpose and determined not to miss out on the fun.

James Frey and Todd Cohen of Full Fathom Five executive produce and Landau co-executive produces for Universal Cable Productions.

Recently seen on Agent Carter and Grandfathered, Fonseca is repped by ICM Partners, Management 360 and Morris Yorn. Cappuccino, still a student at New York University, recently had an arc on Jessica Jones and can next be seen as the lead in Kevin Phillips’ indie film Super Dark Times. She is repped by Paradigm and Anonymous Content.
