Brothers & Sisters and Six Feet Under alumna Rachel Griffiths is returning to series television as the lead of NBC 10-episode summer series Camp, from creators Liz Heldens and Peter Elkoff, BermanBraun and Universal TV. In the tradition of Meatballs and Dazed And Confused, Little Hawk Family Camp is a wicked slice of lake-side heaven. In the one-hour dramedy, parents decompress with gin while teenagers make gleeful mischief and fall in and out of love. Griffiths will play the camp’s director Mackenzie Greenfield, who is reeling from being left by her husband for a younger woman.
Brent Sexton, who is coming off AMC’s The Killing, will co-star opposite Blair Underwood in NBC’s drama pilot Ironside. The reboot of the 1967 detective drama, from writer Mike Caleo and Universal TV, centers on Robert T. Ironside (Underwood), a tough, sexy and acerbic police detective relegated to a wheelchair after a shooting who is hardly limited by his disability as he pushes and prods his hand-picked team to solve the most difficult cases. Sexton, repped by Greene & Associates, will play Gary, Ironside’s ex-partner. Once a hard-nosed detective, Gary blames himself for the shooting and falls apart after the incident, struggling to move on with his life.
