Grey’s Anatomy alum T.R. Knight is set as a male lead opposite Mena Suvari in Amazon Studios’ drama pilot Hysteria, from Shaun Cassidy, Alcon Entertainment and Universal TV. It centers on Dr. Logan Harlow (Suvari), an exceptionally bright but socially awkward neurologist/psychiatrist at the University of Texas Medical School who travels to her hometown of Austin, TX to investigate a mysterious epidemic among high school girls that might be spreading through technology. Knight, repped by Gersh and Thurline, will play Logan Harlow’s brother, Carter James Harlow, a fiercely intense man who’s been on death row since he was 19 years old and is two months away from execution. In the last few days of his life, and after attempting to kill himself by setting fire to his cell, he tries to convince his sister that the panic currently swallowing Austin is the same hysteria that sent him to prison 25 years ago, and if she will help to exonerate him, he’ll give her the clues she needs to resolve the crisis.
Adrienne C. Moore has been promoted to regular on the third season of Netflix’s Orange Is The New Black. Moore recurred the first two seasons as Black Cindy, a brash and bold inmate who’s not afraid to tell it like it is. She is with Abrams Artists Agency and Rob Kolker at Red Letter Entertainment.
