According to The Hollywood Reporter, Abigail Spencer has been cast as the lead in Lifetime Television's tentatively titled Emily's Eyes, which has been given a 13-episode order by the female-targeted cable network, sources said.
The hourlong procedural drama, from NBC Universal Television Studio, centers on a tough-as-nails FBI agent (Spencer) in her mid-20s who can sniff out liars. The series will follow the character as she seeks to right the wrongs of her parents, who are CIA operatives serving time in prison for treason.
It's believed that the series is targeted to premiere in the summer. Dan McDermott and Scott Shepherd are writing Eyes.
