The project examines what happens when an unlikely puppeteer pulls Washington’s elite — including the President of the United States — into an international conspiracy. Ravich and Far Shariat will exec-produce.

666 Park Avenue‘s Rachael Taylor also has been cast as Susie Dunn, the FBI agent investigating the blackmail of some of Washington’s most powerful politicans. Anderson will play Susie’s sister Meg, a successful CEO estranged from her sibling thanks to the mutual secret they keep.

In the decade since The X-Files wrapped, Anderson has taken part in projects like Encore’s Moby Dick and the British TV series The Fall. She also has a three-episode arc on NBC’s upcoming Silence of the Lambs prequel series, Hannibal.

    Always good to know GA might be back on our TV sets – but there go my hopes that she’d be Moriarity to Sherlock Holmes on “Elementary.”

    Please let this one stick although I admire rachael Taylor’s persistence in finding pilots. I mean she’s been in like 2 tv shows that unfortunately been canned. So I pray for her success.

    I really like Rachael Taylor but she can’t seem to find a series that people want to watch. Hopefully that changes with this show.
