Revolution alum David Lyons has been cast as the lead in NBC’s hour-long drama pilot Game Of Silence.
Based on a Turkish format, Game Of Silence tells the story of a rising attorney with a mysterious past who is on the brink of success. All that is threatened, however, when a long lost friend from childhood returns and threatens to reveal a dark secret from his past.
Per Deadline, David Lyons, whose other television credits include The Cape and ER, will play Jackson, the rising attorney at the center of the project. Casting is currently underway for the remaining core characters – including the co-lead role of Jackson’s long lost friend.
Parenthood scribe David Hudgins penned the script for Game Of Silence, which is set up at Sony Pictures Television. Carol Mendelsohn, who worked on 14 seasons on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation before recently handing the showrunner reins over to Don McGill, executive produces alongside David Hudgins, Julie Weitz, Timur Savci and Tariq Jalil.
Game Of Silence has been on a fast track at NBC, where it landed back in September with a hefty pilot production commitment. It eventually landed a formal pilot order in January and is one of two Turkish adaptations in the works this pilot season, with the other being Runner which is set up at ABC.
