Carla Gugino (Political Animals) is the latest actress to board Fox’s upcoming 10-part event series Wayward Pines, which is being eyed for a 2014 premiere.
Gugino has been cast as Kate Hewson, a resident of Wayward Pines and Ethan’s former Secret Service partner. Gugino joins the growing cast for the series, which includes Matt Dillon (There’s Something About Mary) as lead character Ethan Burke, and Melissa Leo (Homicide: Life On The Street) as Nurse Pam.
Based on Blake Crouch’s best-selling novel Pines, Wayward Pines hails from M. Night Shyamalan and follows US Secret Service agent Ethan Burke (Matt Dillon) as he arrives in the bucolic town of Wayward Pines, ID, on a mission to find two missing federal agents. But instead of answers, Ethan’s investigation only turns up more questions. What’s wrong with Wayward Pines? Each step closer to the truth takes Ethan further from the life he knew, from the husband and father he was, until he must face the terrifying reality that he may never get out of Wayward Pines alive. Based on a spec-script written by Chad Hodge, Wayward Pines is produced by FX Productions with Shyamalan, Hodge, Donald De Line and Ashwin Rajan serving as executive producers.
