Two More Lone Star Leads Book Pilots

It’s been a big week for Lone Star‘s leading trio. Adrianne Palicki on Wednesday was cast as the new Wonder Woman in David E. Kelley’s pilot for NBC. Now the short-lived Fox drama’s star, James Wolk, and other female lead, Eloise Mumford, have also been tapped for high-profile pilot gigs.

TV’s New Wonder Woman Is Adrianne Palicki

Wolk is set to headline Georgetown, a drama written by Will Fetters and described as a sexy soap centered around the young people behind the power brokers of Washington, DC. It centers on Andrew Pierce (Wolk), an effortlessly charming and brilliant Yale graduate and the youngest presidential speech writer on record who was once idealistic but is now cynical as he sees how compromise has eroded the administration’s promise. Georgetown hails from Warner Bros. TV and Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage’s Fake Empire.

One of Wolk’s Lone Star leading ladies, Eloise Mumford (on right in the photo), has become the first actor cast in another ABC drama, the horror-thriller The River. The project, from DreamWorks TV and ABC Studios, centers on  small group that goes deep into the Amazon in search for a missing TV explorer. Mumford will play  a fearless helicopter pilot attached to the expedition whose father, the explorer’s cameraman, is also missing.

    I am one of the few people that actually really liked that show and was very disappointed how it was abruptly cancelled , so it’s nice to see that the three main actors will be on TV again.

    I feel bad for Natalie Morales, I feel bad for anyone who has to work with Chelsea Handler.

    Funny that it was the cast photos that made me decide not to watch Lone Star in the first place.

  4. Lorie says:

    I’ll try any new show with James Wolk.
