Caitlin Carver (The Fosters) and Yani Gellman (Pretty Little Liars) have booked series regular roles opposite Chace Crawford, Don Johnson and Delroy Lindo in the ABC drama pilot Boom. Written by Josh Pate and Rodes Fishburne and directed by Jonas Pate, Boom examines the biggest oil discovery in American history which has triggered a geopolitical shift and an economic boom in North Dakota on a scale not seen since the 1849 California Gold Rush.
Carver will play Lacey Boyd, the younger daughter of Hap (Johnson). Gellman will play A.J. Menendez, Hap’s personal driver who leads a triple life: He’s not only Lacey’s clandestine lover, he’s a spy for the reigning family of Saudi Arabia as a member of its royal family. And Lacey’s pillow talk gets passed along to the Middle East as soon as she falls asleep.
Carver, repped by Abrams Artists Agency, Red Rock Entertainment and attorney Chad Christopher, next appears in Warren Beatty’s untitled Howard Hughes movie and is filming the feature Impact Earth. Gellman, repped by Domain, Authentic Management and OAZ, next appears in the telefilm Trigger Point.
