Parenthood star Peter Krause has been set at the male lead in The Catch, ABC’s upcoming Mireille Enos fronted drama series from ABC Studios, Shonda Rhimes and her production company Shondaland.
From Shonda Rhimes, Betsy Beers and Jennifer Schuur, The Catch is a new thriller centered on the strong, successful Alice Martin (Mireille Enos). She’s a fraud investigator who’s about to be the victim of fraud by her fiancé. Between her cases, she is determined to find him before it ruins her career.
Peter Krause will play Kieran Booth, a successful, longtime con man who lives the good life with other people’s money. But has he met his match with his latest mark, Alice? Krause replaces Damon Dayoub, who played the role in the pilot. Shortly after the project scored a series order, ABC announced that they were recasting Dayoub’s role. The network is also recasting the role of Kieran’s real wife, played in the pilot by Bethany Joy Lenz (One Tree Hill).
In addition to Parenthood, Krause’s long list of television credits include Sports Night, Six Feet Under and Dirty Sexy Money. He joins a cast which includes Mireille Enos, Alimi Ballard, Jay Hayden, Jacky Ido, Rose Rollins and Elvy Yost. Jennifer Schur created the series and serves as an executive producer alongside Shonda Rhimes, Betsy Beers and Julie Anne Robinson.
