House‘s Odette Annable has found a new TV home.
The actress has landed a multi-episode arc on Banshee, Cinemax’s upcoming 10-episode drama series exec produced by her former House boss Greg Yaitanes.
The project, written by authors Jonathan Tropper and David Schickler, centers on Lucas (played by New Zealand thesp Antony Starr), an ex-convict and master thief who assumes the identity of the sheriff of Banshee, Penn, and continues to carry out his criminal activities even as shadowy gangsters hunt him.
Annable will play a beautiful Native American assassin with a murky past.
The cast also includes Ivana Milicevic (Charlie’s Angels), Rus Blackwell (Burn Notice) Ulrich Thomsen (The Thing), Matt Servitto (Harry’s Law), Trieste Dunn (Canterbury’s Law), Daniel Ross Owens (The Lying Game, Detroit 1-8-7), Hoon Lee (Blue Bloods, White Collar) and Lili Simmons (Geek Charming, Zeke and Luther).
True Blood‘s Alan Ball also serves as an EP alongside Yaitanes, Tropper, Schickler and Peter Macdissi.Follow @MichaelAusiello
