Melissa George will join The Hunted for the ABC Network.
She plays the second female lead in the Dangerous Liaisons-esque drama starring Rufus Sewell.
Set in New York City, the drama revolves around the love and rivalry between two equally matched, powerful socialites who play out their obsessive attraction to and seduction of each other through their manipulation of others.
George will play Margot Worth Cole, a beautiful woman whose power, style and intellect command attention the instant she enters a room.
She recently appeared in The Good Wife, coming up on TEN.
Meanwhile Anthony LaPaglia joins an untitled terrorism drama, by Nikki Toscano/Kerry Ehrin, for CBS.
It centres on retired CIA operative-turned-high school football coach who is pulled back into action after a terrorist event rocks Washington, D.C., and he’s forced to investigate closer to home, where the next generation of terrorists are being bred.
LaPaglia will star as Coach Holden Weller, the coach/athletic director in Virginia whose commitment to his job nearly cost him his family. Shanley Caswell and Aimee Garcia co-star.
Without a Trace had a five year run on CBS.
