The show, from writer Sam Shaw and director Thomas Schlamme, Skydance TV, Tribune Studios and Lionsgate TV, is set against the backdrop of the clandestine mission to build the world’s first atomic bomb in Los Alamos, NM and follows the brilliant but flawed scientists and their families as they attempt to co-exist in a world where secrets and lies infiltrate every aspect of their lives. Lloyd, repped by ICM Partners and Curtis Brown Group in the UK, will play one of the scientists. Filming is slated to begin in March in New Mexico.
Mark Deklin (GCB, Lone Star) has landed a series regular role on the second season of Lifetime’s dramedy Devious Maids.

Devious Maids has been beefing up the cast with new regulars for Season 2, including Dominic Adams and Joanna P. Adler.
