OCCULT: New A&E Supernatural Pilot
The A&E Network is getting into scripted programming in a big way (their Bates Motel premieres next Monday), and now they're entering the world of the supernatural with the pilot Occult, for which they have just cast the two lead roles.
Nature abhors a vacuum and apparently television can't handle not having a series on the air in which characters are investigating the supernatural. Whether it's The Night Stalker, The X-Files or Fringe, there always seems to be this type of show, and now A&E has found the leads for its new pilot, Occult. Reports Deadline.com, "Josh Lucas and Lynn Collins have been set as the leads of A&E‘s drama pilot Occult, produced by Transformers helmer Michael Bay and written by veteran genre writer, The X-Files alum James Wong. With Lucas and Collins on board, the project, originally picked up in September as cast-contingent, is going into production. Occult, which draws parallels to X-Files and Fringe, centers on Dolan (Lucas), an FBI agent who returns from administrative leave after going off the deep end while investigating his wife’s disappearance. Eager to be back on the job, he is paired with Noa Blair (Collins), an agent with her own complicated backstory who specializes in the occult. Together, they will solve cases for the newly formed occult crimes task force." Collins portrayed Dejah Thoris in last year's John Carter.
