Rebecca Gayheart has been cast in the lead role of the Lifetime drama pilot Scarlett, the story of a popular horror novelist living in New Orleans whose characters seem to be coming to life. The script was written by two Star Trek writing staff alumni, Robert Hewitt Wolfe and Hans Beimler.
The Hollywood Reporter (via Reuters) reported that Gayheart will be joined by Kristen Dalton, Lyndsy Fonseca and Michael Duvert for roles in the one-hour pilot, which will film this month in New Orleans.
Gayheart, who has appeared on television in Nip/Tuck, Dead Like Me and Beverly Hills, 90210, was in the films Harvard Man and Jawbreaker. Dalton appears in the upcoming Martin Scorsese project The Departed, while Fonseca will be in CBS' new comedy series How I Met Your Mother as well as another Lifetime project, Cyber Seduction.
Steve Miner will reportedly direct the pilot, which is executive produced in part by Bruce Willis, according to Monsters & Critics. Since Deep Space Nine, Wolfe has worked on Andromeda and The 4400, Beimler on The District and The Twilight Zone.
