Dilshad Vadsaria (Revenge) has been cast in a lead role in the Fox pilot Frankenstein, from Rand Ravich, Howard Gordon and 20th TV. Taking inspiration from the basic Mary Shelley mythology of a man brought back to life by scientists playing God, Frankenstein centers on Ray Pritchard (Philip Baker Hall), a morally corrupt retired cop who is given a second chance at life when he is brought back from the dead. Vadsaria — repped by Kohner, Kass Management and attorney Michael Fuller — will play Mary Goodwin, the beautiful, brilliant young woman who, with her brother Otto, have built a cyber empire. Her other TV credits include Greek and Murder In The First.
Enuka Okuma (Rookie Blue) is set as a lead opposite Terry O’Quinn and Christine Lahti in the ABC drama pilot The Adversaries. From ABC Studios and writer/executive producer David Zabel, it centers on the patriarch of a New York legal dynasty, Charles Fisher (O’Quinn), who becomes embroiled in a trial of his own, and his federal prosecutor daughter who must decide which side she will fight on. Okuma, repped by the Kohner Agency and Sanders Armstrong Caserta Management, plays an attorney at Fisher’s firm.
Rose Rollins (The L Word) has signed on for a regular role on ABC drama pilot The Catch. Based on the novel by Kate Atkinson, The Catch centers on Alice (Mireille Enos), who is about to get married to Kieran (Damon Dayoub) and about to get conned. Unbeknownst to her slippery fiancé, our heroine — who investigates fraud for a living — is not all she claims to be. Innovative Artists-repped Rollins will play Andie, Evan’s wife and the primary caregiver for their two children. She and her husband are Alice and Kieran’s closest friends. Rollins recurred on Amazon’s Bosch.
Anne Winters (Tyrant) has landed a regular role opposite Adam Rothenberg and Holley Fain in ABC’s drama pilot L.A. Crime. Written by Steven Baigelman and directed by Tom Shankland, L.A. Crime explores sex, politics and popular culture across various noteworthy eras in Los Angeles history. In the first installment, L.A. Crime: The Sunset Strip, two LA cops, Jack Roth (Rothenberg) and Paco Contreras, will be searching for a Bonnie & Clyde-esque serial-killing team amid the coke-infused rock ‘n’ roll, revelry of the 1980s Sunset Strip. Winters, repped by Gersh and Intellectual Artist Management/Primary Wave Entertainment, will play Vicki Roth, daughter of Jack (Rothenberg) and Trish (Fain).
