Reckless is a sultry legal show set in Charleston, South Carolina, where a gorgeous Yankee litigator and a Southern City Attorney struggle to hide their intense attraction while clashing over a police sex scandal.

Gladis will play the police force’s Chief Knox, and Gigandet will play the lead character of Roy, the city attorney.

Gladis is best known as Mad Men‘s copywriter-turned-Hare-Krishna-turned-would-be-screenwriter Paul Kinsey; his recent TV credits include Justified, How I Met Your Mother and Leverage.

Gigandet was Ryan’s nemesis Volchok for two seasons of the teen soap. In addition to playing vampire James in the first Twilight movie, Gigandet’s resume also includes Jack & Bobby and The Young and the Restless.

  • There are two pilots called Reckless, one is from ABC and the other from CBS. The ABC pilot is the one with Ashton Holmes and the one Michael Gladis and Cam Gigandet were cast in the CBS one.

  • Good day, I’m a new blogger and I enjoy reading
    this blog, so I figured maybe I could receive your guidance on some dilemma that I
    have. Do you list everyone’s responses? Even those who are just annoying?
    I just don’t know what I should do.
