After a long search, Elena Satine (Magic City) has landed the last key role in NBC‘s Carlton Cuse-produced pilot The Sixth Gun. Written by Ryan Condal based on the comic, directed by Jeffrey Reiner and produced by Universal TV, the supernatural Western follows the story of six mythical guns, each with its own other-worldly powers. When the Sixth Gun, the most powerful and dangerous of the group, resurfaces in the hands of an innocent girl, Becky Montcrief (Laura Ramsey), dark forces re-awaken. Satine will play the “widow” Missy Hume, a powerful Madame who runs the town of Brimstone kept unnaturally youthful by being in possession of the Fifth Gun. A cold stunningly beautiful woman of great cunning, she is unafraid to use whatever means to collect all Six Guns for her own dark purposes. Satine, repped by ICM Partners, Mosaic and Dave Feldman, co-starred on the first two seasons of Starz’s Magic City.
Wynn Everett (The Newsroom) has been cast as the female lead opposite Steve Zahn and Christian Slater in the ABC drama pilot Influence, from Kyle Killen and 20th TV. The project is a workplace ensemble centered on the complicated relationship between two brothers — Clark (Zahn), a bipolar genius in human psychology, and Ross (Slater), a slick ex-con — who head a unique agency designed to solve their clients’ problems using the real science of human motivation and manipulation. Everett, repped by Gersh, plays Claire, Ross’ ex-wife, hired by Clark to be the new office manager.
