Freeform's The Deep and TNT's Claws.

  • Eline Powell (Game of Thrones) and Rena Owen (The Last Witch Hunter) have been cast on the drama pilot written by Eric Wald and Dean White. Powell will play Po, a strange young woman who appears traumatized and lost. Growing increasingly ill and exhausted on land, she is revealed to be a mermaid. Owen will play Helen, the eccentric proprietor of a Bristol Cove curio shop. She is an enigmatic person who views the town's mermaid obsession with disdain. She also appears to have some connection with the strange girl, Po.
  • Jason Antoon (Electric City, Famous in Love) has booked a regular role on the dramedy pilot starring Niecy Nash and Carrie Preston. He will play Dr. Ken Brickman, a bona fide doctor with a decidedly un-bona fide job, working at an illegal drug clinic.
