Carla Gugino (Sydney St. James from Falcon Crest’s season 9) will star in the upcoming FOX series Wayward Pines by M. Night Shyamalan (see our news dated 2013-07-29).
Finally, a release date has been announced: The series will premiere on May 14, 2015.
Wayward Pines centers on a Secret Service agent named Ethan Burke (played by Matt Dillon) who’s searching for two missing agents in the titular town.
Gugino plays Kate Hewson, Ethan’s former partner and ex-girlfriend who now lives in Wayward Pines. She’s smart, capable, loyal, fiery, blunt and fearless. But their former love for each other simmers just below the surface.
The star-studded project (Juliette Lewis, Melissa Leo, Terence Howard and Reed Diamond are also part of the cast), based on the best-selling novel of the same name, is billed as a mind-bending new thriller set in a small town where nothing is what it seems.
There’s also a brand new trailer online.
