We told you that another foreign property was getting the Americanized treatment a couple of weeks ago as A&E acquired the rights to the hit French series “The Returned” (“Les Revenants”), and now the first casting news is here!
According to Deadline, Mark Pellegrino (pictured; “Lost,” “Supernatural,” “The Tomorrow People,” No Holds Barred) is reuniting with “Lost” co-showrunner Carlton Cuse.
That’s right, kids; Pellegrino has been tapped as a lead in Cuse’s 10-episode straight-to-series A&E drama “The Returned.” Cuse wrote the first episode, and he and Raelle Tucker will write and executive produce the supernatural/suspense drama, an adaptation of the acclaimed French series.
“The Returned,” from A&E Studios and FremantleMedia North America, focuses on a small town that is turned upside down when several local people who have been long presumed dead suddenly reappear, bringing with them both positive and detrimental consequences. Pellegrino will play the rugged Jack, father of 20-year-old twin girls Lena and Camille, who died in a school bus crash four years ago at age 16 and are now coming back.
