The female lead in Kevin Williamson’s still untitled pilot for CBS has been found, and it’s the always kick-ass Maggie Q, best known for her title role in “Nikita.”
Per Deadline, Q (Priest, Divergent) will play Detective Beth Davis, the opinionated and obsessive, workaholic Division Captain of LAPD’s Threat Assessment Unit, who also narrates the story.
She joins the previously announced Dylan McDermott and Mariana Klaveno in the CBS/Warner Bros. TV project written by Williamson (Scream, “The Vampire Diaries,” “The Following”) and directed by Liz Friedlander (“The Secret Circle,” “The Following”).
The psychological thriller revolves around two detectives, Beth and Jack (McDermott), who handle stalking incidents for the Threat Assessment Unit of the LAPD. McDermott’s Jack Larsen is a recent transfer from New York. His healthy confidence and quick thinking have gotten him into trouble in the past — a past he hopes to leave behind.
Klaveno’s Janice is underestimated in her unit because of her somewhat flashy appearance.
Look for more as it comes.
