NBC ordered the Abrams-Cuarón pilot at the end of January (source), and over the past couple weeks, we’ve begun to learn what the cast will look like:the

  • Jake McLaughlin (Savages) will star as Tate, “the man who is sprung from prison” to protect Bo, a girl in possession of a great gift. (source)
  • Delroy Lindo (The Chicago Code) will play Winter, “a kind man with an honorable agenda posing as a priest who might not be what he seems.” (source)
  • Sienna Guillory (Resident Evil) will play Moore, “a cool hit-woman who has issues with her own mother.” (source)
  • Jamie Chung (Once Upon a Time) will play Channing, “a strong, practical and smart woman who works for Winter and assists Tate when he escapes from prison.” (source)
  • And last but not least, newcomer Johnny Sequoyah is cast as Bo, the young girl with great powers to manifest in seven years. (source)

The pilot, co-written by Alfonso Cuarón and Mark Friedman shoots next month in New York (source), under Cuarón’s direction.  Sounds like it will be action packed!!

UPDATE:

  • Kyle MacLachlan (Desperate Housewives) has been cast as Skouras, “a mysterious billionaire with an even more mysterious agenda.” (source)
  • In addition (learned from IMDb):
