Craig Horner and Bridget Regan have signed on to star in Sam Raimi's syndicated series Wizard's First Rule, which launches this fall.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the scripted series will be an hourlong weekly from Disney-ABC Domestic Television and ABC Studios, and is based on Terry Goodkind's book "Wizard's First Rule" and epic fantasy series "The Sword of Truth."

Horner will star as woodsman Richard Cypher, who transforms into a magical leader and joins with a mysterious woman named Kahlan (Regan) to stop a bloodthirsty, sinister tyrant.

Production on the 22 episodes begins this month in New Zealand.
