USA Network has tapped Allegiance alum Morgan Spector for a starring role in their period drama pilot Paradise Pictures, from Suits creator Aaron Korsh and sister studio Universal Cable Productions.
Penned by Rick Muirragui, Paradise Pictures is about ambitious people striving to get to the top in 1940s Hollywood, when the dream factory was at its peak. Little do they know the challenges they’re about to face: the end of studio monopolies, the blacklist and the new disruptive technology of television.
Morgan Spector has been cast as Tom Kirby, the Head of Production at Paradise Pictures, a rising film studio in 1946 Hollywood. Kirby doesn’t own the studio, but it’s clear to everyone in town that he is in charge and that is not afraid to get his hands dirty in order to elevate the studio into prominence.
Spector is the first to be cast in Paradise Pictures, which was ordered to pilot at USA in April and is eyed for a late 2015 production start. Aaron Korsh and Rick Muirragui serve as executive producers on the Universal Cable Productions produced series.
