EXCLUSIVE: Quibi has rounded out its supporting cast for sci-fi drama series Don’t Look Deeper. Jan Luis Castellanos (Runaways), Erin Pineda (American Princess) Raquel McPeek Rodriguez (Chicago Med) and Kaiwi Lyman (Den Of Thieves, American Horror Story, American Violence) are set opposite previously announced Don Cheadle, Emily Mortimer and Helena Howard.

Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight, Red Riding Hood) is attached to direct and executive produce.
Co-written by Lost co-creator Jeffrey Lieber, who also serves as showrunner, and Charlie McDonnell, Don’t Look Deeper is set in Merced, California, “fifteen minutes into the future.” It centers on a high school senior who can’t seem to shake the feeling that something about her just isn’t right. And that something is… she’s not human… not one of us. This revelation of what she really is, where she comes from, and who has started looking for her, sets in motion a series of events that suddenly puts her entire life in jeopardy.
Lieber, McDonnell and Hardwicke executive produce with Kathleen Grace and Laura Schwartz for New Form and Jed Weintrob and Julina Tatlock for 30 Ninjas.
Castellanos is repped by APA, and 23 Management. Lyman is repped by Hyperion and Deanda Management.
