dentThe Shield alumna Catherine Dent has become the first series regular cast in AMC drama pilot Galyntine. Written by Jason Cahill, directed by David Mackenzie and executive produced by Scott Free and The Walking Dead‘s Greg Nicotero, the fantasy-action adventure with hints of sci-fi is set in a postapocalyptic future without technology where a band of survivors is forced to adapt to isolation and the challenges of their new world. Dent, repped by SDB Partners and manager Harris Spylios, will play one of the survivors, Haven, who lived through the global disaster with her two kids. Filming is set to begin in Utah next month. Dent recurs on Fox’s Gang Related.
