Development News - March 9, 2022

ABC's Untitled The Rookie Spinoff; The CW's Gotham Knights; and NBC's Quantum Leap.

  • Nanrisa Lee, Mason Alexander Park and Caitlin Bassett have joined the cast of the drama pilot starring Raymond Lee and Ernie Hudson. Lee previously recurred on Amazon's Bosch and AppleTV+'s The Morning Show. Park recurred on Netflix's Cowboy Bebop and stars in Netflix's upcoming drama The Sandman. Bassett is an alum of the 2020 ABC Discovers Talent Showcase.
  • Lee will play Jenn, who's the head of security at Quantum Leap headquarters.
  • Park will play Ian, the chief architect of Quantum Leap's AI program.
  • Bassett will play Addison, a project lead at Quantum Leap HQ who operates state-of-the-art technology to communicate with an individual time traveling in the past.
  • Kat Foster and Felix Solis will guest star in the two-part backdoor pilot starring Niecy Nash. Foster previously recurred on CBS' CSI: Vegas and next appears in Starz's upcoming limited series Gaslit. Solis currently stars in Netflix's Ozark, which returns for its final episodes next month.
  • Foster will play Special Agent Casey Fox. She has been on the job for five years and she's succeeded by being both whip-smart and a team player. She is a rule-follower who knows how to work the system to get the best assignments. As a training agent, she is determined to instill conformity in her trainees - the way to survive and thrive is to fit in and get ahead.
  • Solis will play Special Agent Matthew Garza, a 20-year veteran of the FBI who has been a true believer in the "agency way" his whole career. A senior agent on the cusp of being promoted to a leadership role, he is tough, smart and filled with a little too much self-importance.
  • Oscar Morgan, Olivia Rose Keegan and Navia Robinson have been cast as series regulars on the drama pilot written by Chad Fiveash, James Stoteraux and Natalie Abrams. Morgan previously starred in the BBC One sitcom Warren. Keegan won a Daytime Emmy Award in 2020 for her performance in NBC's Days of Our Lives. Robinson currently stars in Disney's Raven's Home, which returns for its fifth season this Friday.
  • Morgan will play Turner Hayes. Despite the murder of his biological parents, he remains resilient and driven to live up to his billionaire adoptive father's name. While charming and soulful, he has never quite felt comfortable in this world of wealth and privilege.
  • Keegan will play Duela. Abrasive, unpredictable and a little unhinged, she is, above all, a survivor. Born in Arkham Asylum and abandoned by her father - the most dangerous man in Gotham - she forged herself into a brutal fighter and skilled thief.
  • Robinson will play Carrie Kelly. Fearless, idealistic and plucky as hell, she talked her way into being Batman's unlikely sidekick. If there's a burning building or a person in need, she's the first to rush in. Just as long as she's home by curfew.
