ABC has just found two actors for two of its brand new pilots. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Geoff Stults has joined the cast as the lead in Happy Town and Martin Henderson signs on for Inside the Box.
Happy Town is a new series in the vein of Twin Peaks, with a small town coping with its first crime in seven years - a grizly murder - and the town's new sherrif Tommy (Stults) who has to solve the case. The project marks an October Road reunion for Stults and creators Josh Appelbaum, Andre Nemec and Scott Rosenberg, who wrote the pilot script, and Gary Fleder, who directed the October Road pilot, will direct this pilot as well.
Inside the Box comes from Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice creator Shonda Rhimes and will center on a working professional female named Catherine and her on-and-off relationship with a dashing male co-worker, Jake (Henderson).
No production schedule was given for either pilot.
