ABC Family has locked down the main cast for Guilt.
Daisy Head (The Syndicate), Billy Zane (Titanic), Katrina Law (Arrow), Cristian Solimeno (Rush), Naomi Ryan (Guardians Of The Galaxy), Kevin Ryan (Copper) and Zachary Fall (Crossing Lines) have been tapped for regular roles in the drama pilot, which is similar in tone to the real life Amanda Knox case and tells the story of an American teenager who becomes the prime suspect in her roommate’s violent murder.
Guilt tells the story of an American in London who becomes the prime suspect in the savage murder of her roommate. As the investigation unfolds, viewers will question whether she’s a naïve, young girl whose poor decisions are being magnified under the ruthless glare of the British tabloids, or whether she’s a sociopath who brutally murdered her friend. Even her sister, who comes to London to defend her, will question how well she knows her little sister as more and more ugly truths come out. This mystery will twist through all layers of London society – from a posh but depraved sex club, all the way up to the Royal Family itself
Daisy Head has been cast as Grace, an immature young girl enjoys living life in the fast lane in London who is stunned when she becomes the prime suspect in her friend’s murder; Billy Zane as Stan, Grace’s cocky and cunning defense attorney; Katrina Law as Natalie, a Boston attorney who drops everything when her sister becomes a murder suspect; Cristian Solimeno as DS Bruno, an ambitious Scotland Yard Detective who is determined to get to the bottom of this murder; Naomi Ryan as Gwendolyn, the Crown Prosecutor; Kevin Ryan as Patrick, whose sister Molly is the victim; Zachary Fall as Luc, Grace’s drug-addicted boyfriend.
