Pilot Scoop: Lost Vet Naveen Andrews to Get Reckless for Former Employer ABC

Reckless ABC Pilot Naveen AndrewsFormer Lost castaway Naveen Andrews has joined ABC’s drama pilot Reckless, TVLine has learned.

From Chris Black (Mad Men) and Martin Campbell (Last Resort), the prospective series centers on David (played by Almost Famous’ Patrick Fugit), a resourceful man doing all he can to free his wife Sara (Eloise Mumford), who has been unjustly imprisoned overseas during a political uprising. When stymied by an overly diplomatic U.S. government, he’s forced to use questionable tactics to secure her release.

Andrews — whose recent TV credits include Law & Order: SVU and the UK’s Sinbad — will play Roland, a renegade going to great lengths (for a great price) to rescue David’s wife.

He joins the previously cast Parminder Nagra (ER), Ernie Hudson (Oz), Ashton Holmes (Revenge) and Lou Taylor Pucci.

    That show sounds great! I bet ABC can’t wait to destroy it with awful scheduling choices.

  9. Cameron says:

    I’ll watch the pilot at least. This one sounds like it could go either way.

  10. I wonder which accents he will switch between.

  11. How's Annie says:

    I’m not bothering with a show on the Already Been Cancelled network ever again.

    when does it start??? i saw a whole episode and it looks really good!

    • Jana says:

      Hi Tracey… how did you get to see an episode of ABC’s Reckless? (not the CBS project called Reckless)? ABC’s Reckless was changed from a series to a TV Movie on IMDb. Do you know perhaps the status on this project? I’d love to be able to scoop this on my fanpage for Naveen Andrews (sexynaveen.com) Thanks!

    • Michael says:

      Where did you saw the whole episode? Can I purchase it from somewhere? Thanks!

  14. Mike says:

    Where can I watch this at?

  15. jana says:

    I have never seen an episode of this project. It shows as a TV movie (instead of a series) on IMDb. My only guess is that this is either related to a write down for accounting purposes, or a thinly veiled attempt at putting a different spin on the cancellation. (Or to comply with a stipulation in someone’s contract??) I doubt we’ll ever know.
