ABC’s three major drama pickups last year — Notorious, Conviction, and Time After Time — failed to connect with audiences and critics alike. Channing Dungey must really be feeling the pressure to deliver.
Book-to-television adaptations were busy making big casting announcements today, with Game of Thrones, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, and The Alienist all adding to their line-ups.
TNT’s The Alienist has tapped Sean Astin to play Theodore Roosevelt, meanwhile How I Met Your Motheralum Josh Radnor is set to lead NBC’s Drama High cast.
Marvel’s Inhumans has added five new castmembers including one mysterious role, and Rosie Perez is set to headline NBC’s Drama High.
