The Glades star Matt Passmore is set as the lead of another potential basic cable drama series. Passmore will topline USA Network’s untitled Sean Jablonski pilot, which centers on Neil Truman (Passmore), an investment banker who attempts to satisfy his married midlife crisis by quitting his job and redefining himself and his relationships. UCP is producing, with Jablonski and Russ Krasnoff executive producing. USA had its eye on Passmore for a while but could not lock him in until he had been released from The Glades. Following The Glades’ cancellation by A&E, producer Fox TV Studios explored other potential homes for the series including Ion, though an deal could not be closed, making Passmore available. He is repped by WME, ROAR, and RGM in Australia.
