Some casting news has just come in for ABC’s new supernatural crime drama “The Gates”, and we’ve got the skinny for you. And we guess we’ve got the fat, too. Never really understood what that whole “the skinny” thing meant, but screw it — you know what we are talking about!
According to The Hollywood Reporter “Prison Break” alum Frank Grillo has landed the lead in ABC’s new series along with Luke Mably, Janina Gavankar, and Chandra West, who have also been cast in the project, which Terry McDonough has come on board to direct.
Written by Richard Hatem and Grant Scharbo, “The Gates” centers on a big city cop (Grillo) who becomes chief of police in a seemingly sleepy planned community only to discover there’s much more to the residents than meets the eye. Mably (“The Prince and Me”) will play one of the residents, a cardiologist who is a vampirelike creature. Gavankar (“The L Word”) will play a local cop with a dark secret. West (“90210″) will play the owner of a tea shop.
The network is targeting the series for a summer launch. More as we get it.
