Danielle Panabaker (CBS’ Shark) is set to star in the ABC Family pilot Intercept; Donal Logue, Karen Allen and Ana de la Reguera have joined TNT’s Western pilot Gateway; and Tom Felton has been added to the European miniseries Labyrinth.
Intercept is a one-hour technology- and action-driven drama about four college students who get roped into solving crimes when one of them creates a high-tech communication device that intercepts conversations throughout the West Coast. Panabaker will play one of the two girls on the team, Kat, described as the prettiest and coolest girl on campus. Also cast in the pilot is Chloe Wang as Tess, the other female member of the team, a pretty, bookish techie.
TNT’s action/adventure Gateway is set in the Colorado town of the same name in the 1880s and tells the story of three Flynn brothers — Terence (David Denman), Daniel (Keir O’Donnell) and Jake (Cam Gigandet) — who step in to save their town when their sheriff father is murdered, pitting them against a corrupt cattle baron determined to make the town his own. Allen will play the brothers’ mom, a rancher’s daughter. Logue will play Auggie, Jake’s drinking buddy, an aristocratic soul who inherited the town store from his father. De la Reguera will play the practical and feisty co-owner of Lola’s saloon.
Four-hour mini-series Labyrinth is based on Kate Mosse’s bestseller. The mini, from Tandem and Scott Free, tells the parallel stories of Alice, a present-day volunteer at an archeological excavation who discovers a ring with a labyrinth engraved on it and 13th century new bride Alais, who is protecting books that reveal the secret of the holy grail. Felton (24) will play Raymond-Roger de Trencavel, Viscount of Carcassonne, who died in 1209 (also at the age of 24) a martyr, trying to protect his Cathar citizens from genocide. He joins previously cast John Hurt and Sebastian Stan among others. The project is yet to land U.S. distribution. Felton, repped by WME, U.K.’s Troika and Untitled, is best known for his role as Harry Potter nemesis Draco Malfoy.
