Pilot Scoop: The Killing's Mireille Enos To Star in Shonda Rhimes' The Catch

Mireille Enos Pilot

Mireille Enos is relocating from damp and dreary Seattle to twisty and turny Shondaland.

The former Killing sleuth has signed on to headline The Catch, a potential new drama series from Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers’ factory of hits, TVLine has learned.

Penned by Hannibal scribe Jennifer Schuur and based on an idea by novelist Kate Atkinson and Helen Gregory, the pilot centers on Enos’ Alice Martin, a woman about to get married and conned. Unbeknownst to her slippery fiancé, Alice — who investigates fraud for a living — is not all she claims to be. And when the fiancé’s expertly planned con collides with her perfectly constructed lies, they plunge into a dangerous game of cat and mouse.

Enos is coming off of a four-season stint on The Killing. Prior to that she co-starred in HBO’s Big Love, which, coincidentally, is where Scuur got her start as a TV writer.

    Not familiar with the book, but this sounds awesome.

  3. TVNerd says:

    surprised no black lead

    • Cousin O'yaya says:

      whats that supposed to mean ?

      • Olivia Pope says:

        Probably because Shonda is considered the “queen of diversity”

      • TVNerd says:

        I think Shonda likes to promote diversity by airing shows with a Black lead…while it was necessary for Scandal as Judy Smith is black…it wasn’t necessary for Murder but they did based on how popular Scandal became and now with the phenomenon known as Empire…several shows have casted Black actors for lead roles…I wasn’t being racist if that’s what you got out of it

        • H says:

          Enought black leads, I want albino-Philiphinos from now on, And I will complain endlessly until I get my wish, and then I will complain about the lack of intersex ones from Guinea Bissau, because this is life.

          • TVNerd says:

            seriously I would love to see more Asians whether that means Indians, Chinese, Koreans, or Latin Americans whether that means Brazilians, Venezuelans, Columbians…..America is more than just Black and White

        • lechatnoir says:

          but you mentioned race . There was a shondaland show 3 years ago called Offe map. There had multiple leads , latinos , whites ( plenty ). Canadian ( the white ones ) , central americans etc… You are just a spiteful troll , jealous because the queen of diversity is killing it.

    • herman1959 says:

      Oh Please.

    • it has a white lead just like Grey’s…

  4. Everything can be made better with some Mireille Enos.

  5. Ray says:

    She was good in Big Love. I’m in.

  6. Rachel says:

    Wow, I didn’t recognize her in that pic!

    • ChicagoDan says:

      That’s what made her portrayal in The Killing so much more amazing and real. Do a search of ME photos and you’ll be stunned. I’ll definitely give TC a chance.

  7. Hayden says:

    Which novel by Kate Atkinson is this based on exactly? I don’t believe she has one called The Catch.

  8. Matt C. says:

    Excellent casting! As usual, another fantastic addition to Shondaland.

  9. Jag says:

    I like like her but the pix above does not look like Enos. Is it really her?

  10. Dennis says:

    AMAZING news!!!! LOVE her!

  11. Dennis says:

    She was incredible in The Killing!!!!

  12. Tahina says:

    Loved her in The Killing.. such an awesome character. Looking forward to seeing her back on my screen!

  13. Benjamin says:

    Which Kate Atkinson novel?

  14. She is a terrific actor. Glad for her. Really enjoyed her in “The Killing”.

    Enjoyed Enos in the Killing.Excellent choice but I get why the showrunners
    bailed. Without Dajoub and Lenz we go from an empowered cougar plot to tired old folks. Krause is like 50! This will be a Thanksgiving turkey.
    Original trailer had hooked me.
    Recasting will cost you your 19-49 focus group.
