Pilot News: Reign Alum to Lead CW's Cheerleader Death Squad

Cheerleader Death Squad Alan Van Sprang

Long live Reign‘s deceased monarch.

Alan Van Sprang — who played the late King Henry II on the CW series — will topline the network’s drama pilot Cheerleader Death Squad, our sister site Deadline reports.

The project, from writers/executive producers Marc Cherry (Desperate Housewives), Neal Baer (Law & Order: SVU) and Dan Truly (Blue Bloods), follows a disgraced CIA agent-turned-teacher (Van Sprang) at an elite Washington D.C. prep school who realizes that his students have high-level access through personal connections. He trains a select few (The Middle‘s Gia Mantegna and Suburgatory‘s Abbie Cobb) to be his eyes and ears into the world of international espionage and help him earn his way back into the agency.

The casting marks Van Sprang’s fourth CW role. He has an arc on Season 3 of Beauty and the Beast (premiering May 21) and appeared on Canadian import The L.A. Complex.

    Glad for him. I liked him from his insane alive Reign days.
    But just one remark I think he still hasn’t appeared on BatB, should be a season 3 arc with Natasha H.

    I enjoyed Mr.Sprang on Reign.
    Have to admit that the premise for the New Show “Cheerleader Death Squad ” sounds weak but with Marc Cherry, Dan Truly and Alan Sprang involved I’ll check it out.

    Alan Van Sprang does look a lot like Jerry from Totally Spies, although less scrawny looking. Does he have an evil twin as well? :D

    You know, I really really really really really hate the word Alum. It seems like its used in every second article now multiple times.
