Sakina Jaffrey (House of Cards) is set as a series regular in Time, NBC’s action-adventure drama pilot from Supernatural creator Eric Kripke, The Shield creator Shawn Ryan, Sony Pictures TV and studio-based Davis Entertainment. Described as “Back to the Future meets Mission: Impossible,” Time is a high-octane drama following an unlikely trio who travel through time to battle a master criminal intent on altering the fabric of human history with potentially catastrophic results. Jaffrey will play Agent Denise Christopher, a formidable and high-ranking government agent in charge of the team’s trip back in time to chase after the criminal. Jaffrey recurs on The Mindy Project and Mr. Robot. She’s repped by Greene & Associates Talent Agency, Authentic Talent and Literary and Schreck Rose.
Lilah Richcreek has joined the series regular cast of NBC’s untitled multi-camera family comedy pilot starring Vladimir Caamaño. Produced by Bill Lawrence and written by Adam Sztykiel and Caamaño, the project is inspired by Caamaño’s real-life family dynamic living with his Dominican father and older brother in the Bronx. Richcreek will play self-described Bronx girl Rosie, a smart, capable young woman managing nearly 20 of her dad’s buildings. Vlad (Caamaño) finds her both inspiring and intimidating. When Rosie offers Vlad a job as her IT guy, this gives their good-natured flirtation even more common ground. Richcreek’s credits include a series regular role in Freeform pilot, Gorgeous Morons, and ABC pilot, Family Reunion. She is repped by APA, Mark Schumacher Management, and Meyers & Downs, LLP.
