Lost alum Naveen Andrews has been cast in the ABC pilot Reckless. Written/exec produced by Chris Black and directed/exec produced by Martin Campbell, the thriller centers on David (Patrick Fugit), a resourceful problem solver who, when his wife Sarah (Eloise Mumford) is unjustly imprisoned during a political uprising overseas, resorts to entering a world of political intrigue, dangerous alliances and high emotional stakes in order to get her out. Andrews will play Brit Roland Shaw, former SAS and a renegade who will do whatever it takes, for a price, to rescue Sarah. Andrews, repped by Gersh, Ellen Meyer Management, and attorney Rick Genow, recently wrapped the male lead role opposite Naomi Watts in the film Diana.
Alexis Carra (Grey’s Anatomy) has booked ABC’s single-camera comedy Mixology, directed by Larry Charles from a script by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore. Set in the world of a sexy Manhattan bar, Mixology, from ABC Studios, chronicles the exploits of singles, five guys and five girls, in search of love — all over the course of one night. Carra, repped by SMS and manager JC Robbins, will play one of them, Jessica, the sexy, single mother of two who says she wants drinks, sex and an easy cab ride home, but is ultimately a warm, maternal, loving woman looking for a guy to make time for.
