While pilot season is over for most TV networks, A&E still has one cooking – “Occult,” produced by Michael Bay and written by veteran genre writer James Wong – and a very familiar face has just joined it. Read on for the details.
Per Deadline, Agnes Bruckner (pictured; Blood and Chocolate, The Pact) is set to co-star opposite Josh Lucas and Lynn Collins. The potential new series is written by Wong (“The X-Files,” “Millennium,” “American Horror Story”), who will executive produce with Bay and his partners at Platinum Dunes, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller, producing.
“Occult” revolves around an FBI agent (Lucas) who has returned from administrative leave after going off the deep end while investigating his wife’s disappearance. Eager to be back on the job, he is paired with an agent with her own complicated back story who specializes in the occult (Collins). Together, they will solve cases for the newly formed occult crimes task force. Bruckner will play Lucy, an attractive, edgy young soul caught up in the occult. Presumed dead after being shot in the heart, she rises from the autopsy table, possessed and hell-bent on joining her fellow cultists.
