The L Word alumna Rose Rollins is set as one of the leads in TNT’s legal drama pilot Guilt By Association, from former prosecutor Marcia Clark, on whose book the project is based, and Dee Johnson. It centers on Rachel Knight, a gutsy Deputy District Attorney in the Special Trials Unit of the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office who works closely with tough-as-nails female LAPD detective Bailey Keller and stylish female prosecutor Toni LaCollette (Rollins), both of whom routinely crash at Rachel’s place. Rollins is with Innovative, Elevate Entertainment, and Stone, Meyer.
Jamey Sheridan, who played the Vice President on Homeland, is taking on another member of the government elite next. Sheridan has been cast in TNT’s action-drama pilot Agent X, starring Sharon Stone. Penned by William Blake Herron, it centers on America’s first female Vice President, Natalie Maccabee (Stone), and her secret weapon, Agent X (Jeff Hephner). Sheridan, repped by UTA and Brillstein Entertainment, will play FBI Director Stanton, who is inclined to be patronizing and disdainful, especially in Natalie’s direction. The role, originally envisioned as a recurring, has been made regular for Sheridan, who has been recurring on the CW’s Arrow.
