ABC has found the male lead for The Catch.
Damon Dayoub (The Protector) has been tapped to play the male lead opposite The Killing star Mireille Enos in the hour-long drama pilot from Shonda Rhimes’ production banner Shondaland and ABC Studios.
Penned by Jennifer Schur, The Catch follows Alice (Enos), a woman about to get married and conned. Unbeknownst to her slippery fiance, Alice — who investigates fraud for a living — is not all she claims to be. And when the fiance’s expertly planned con collides with her perfectly constructed lies, they plunge into a dangerous game of cat and mouse
Per THR, Dayoub, will play Kieran, Alice’s fiancé who cons her out of a lot of money before running off with his real wife. The actor, repped by Talentworks and Pop Art Management, had a recurring role on CBS’ hit drama NCIS and is set to appear on ABC Family’s upcoming drama Stitchers.
Shondaland’s principals Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers will executive produce the pilot alongside Julie Anne Robinson, the latter of whom is also attached to direct. Production on the The Catch is slated to commence later this month.
