Based on the original TV series created by Scott Peters and Renee Echevarria, 4400 hails from Riverdale co-executive producer Ariana Jackson, who wrote the pilot; Sunil Nayar; and Anna Fricke and Laura Terry of Pursued By a Bear.
In 4400, over the last century at least 4,400 people who were overlooked, undervalued, or otherwise marginalized vanished without a trace off the face of the planet. Last night, inexplicably, they were all returned in an instant to Detroit having not aged a day and with no memory of what happened to them. As the government races to understand the phenomenon, analyze the potential threat and contain the story, Jharrel (Joseph David-Jones), an empathetic social worker, and Keisha (Ireon Roach), a hardened community corrections officer, are among the civil servants called upon to deal with the uncanny refugees.
The actor, who starred in the original USA Network sci-fi drama series as Shawn Farrell, will play Caleb a charismatic figure from one of the “4400’s” past.
Also set to return to the sci-fi series is Scott Peters, who will direct episode 112, in which Flueger will appear.
Flueger’s additional television credits include Chicago Fire, Criminal Minds, Warehouse 13, Paradise, Law & Order: SVU, Scoundrels, Grounded for Life, Judging Amy, CSI: Miami, Boston Public and JAG.
Peters received two Emmy nominations for the original The 4400, one for writing and one for producing. He also served as a showrunner on ABC’s V: The Series. His additional credits include Queen of the South, Batwoman and Runaways.
Flueger is a native of Red Wing, Minnesota. He is represented by United Talent Agency and Nancy Kremer Management. Peters is represented by Rain Management Group, Rothman Brecher Ehrich Livingston and Lichter, Grossman, Nichols, Adler, Feldman & Clark.
