Former Mom star Sadie Calvano is set as a series regular in NBC drama pilot Suspicion, from The Path creator Jessica Goldberg, Universal TV and Keshet Studios. Created/written by Goldberg based on the book by Joseph Finder and directed by Brad Anderson, Suspicion is described as a Hitchcockian thriller about how far one man will go to save the people he loves. After Danny Goldman accepts a handshake loan from his new friend and millionaire neighbor, he gets a visit from the FBI and learns that the decision is one he will regret for the rest of his life. Coerced to work as an informant for the FBI to earn back his freedom, Danny is forced to infiltrate a world of violence and corruption while trying to protect his family. Calvano will play Tatiana Canter. She has only just recently begun to be social and active, thanks mostly to her strong friendship with Ellie. Calvano, whose breakout role was in Chuck Lorre’s Mom, can be seen next in the upcoming feature Eggplant Emoji from producer Ben Stiller with Jake Szymanski directing for Netflix. She recently starred in the critically praised Webby nominated miniseries The Skinny from executive producer Jill Soloway. Calvano is repped by Paradigm, Zero Gravity Management and attorney Steve Younger.
