EXCLUSIVE: 24 alumna Sarah Clarke has been cast as the female lead in AMC’s drama pilot Line Of Sight. The project, from creator Blake Masters, director Jonathan Demme, Fox TV Studios and AMC Studios, tells the story of Lewis Bernt, a National Transportation Safety Board investigator who survives a mysterious plane crash, bringing him on an emotionally disorienting quest to discover the accident’s cause. Clarke will play Lewis’ wife Dot, an emotionally complicated woman trying to save her marriage and the life with her husband. Clarke, repped by Gersh and Michael Levine Management, is recurring on the new CW series Tomorrow People and just finished indie The Signal opposite Laurence Fishburne.
Dana Davis (Franklin & Bash) and stage actor Peter Macon have been cast as regulars in Bryan Fuller’s Syfy pilot High Moon, which explores what happens when the countries of Earth establish colonies to mine the moon’s resources and discover a new form of life. Davis, repped by Don Buchwald & Associates, Marshak/Zachary and Stone, Meyer plays Yama Winehart, the first – and last – kid ever born on the Moon. Pre-natal problems with artificial gravity mean she can never leave the Moon, giving her a special connection with it and making her the moon’s first environmentalist. Macon, repped by Don Buchwald, will play Yama’s father, General Gale Lynn Winehart, a hard-as-nails American Army General who, with years of hands on battle experience, is not only savvy but cautious as he knows things are not always what they seem.
