Exclusive: BSG Vet Michael Trucco Dives Into ABC's Mystery-Drama Pilot Sea of Fire
Based on a Dutch series, the drama follows the fallout — including one murder and a disappearance — from the discovery that three teenage girls in a small town starred in a pornographic film.
Battlestar Galactica-alum Trucco will play Pete Harper, the father of the lost lass’ boyfriend (Y&R‘s Kevin Schmidt) and husband to Kristen (Nashville’s Christina Chang). A high school football star, Pete now runs a real estate development company.
As previously announced, Dexter‘s Jennifer Carpenter will play the FBI agent assigned to the increasingly troubling case, while Smash‘s Jack Davenport has been cast as the local sheriff who realizes a dark truth about his “perfect” daughter (Isabelle Cornish, Home & Away).
Trucco’s Killer Women co-star Jeffrey Nordling rounds out the cast as the minister father of the missing girl. (Newsflash: Killer Women is not expected to return for a second season.)
The pilot was penned by Scandal‘s Jenna Bans, who will serve as an exec producer alongside Rob Golenberg, Laurie Zaks, Alon Aranya, David Hoberman, Todd Lieberman, Robert Kievit, and Frank Ketelaar.
