RECKLESS, ABC, Naveen Andrews
According to The Hollywood Reporter, LOST alum Naveen Andrews is set to get RECKLESS for ABC.
The actor has reportedly signed on to co-star in the project (not to be confused with CBS' upcoming legal pilot of the same name) from MAD MEN's Chris Black, in which a woman, Sara (Eloise Mumford), is wrongly imprisoned during a political uprising in international terrirory. Her husband, David (Patrick Fugit), attempts to work the legal system to force her release, "but when he's stymied by the U.S. government in the name of diplomacy, David is forced to consider less-than-legal options -- entering a world of political intrigue, dangerous alliances and high emotional stakes," according to the report.
Andrews will take on the role of 'Roland,' "a renegade who will do what ever it takes -- for a price -- to rescue David's kidnapped wife, Sara."
Ashton Holmes, Ernie Hudson, and Lou Taylor Pucci will also co-star in RECKLESS for ABC.
Black will serve as executive producer alongside CASINO ROYALE's Martin Campbell, who will also direct the pilot.
