Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

Mira Sorvino has been cast in BBC America's Intruders. From Deadline (some spoilers in the description):

I’ve learned that Mira Sorvino is set as the female lead opposite John Simm in Intruders, BBC America’s eight-episode original series. Also cast in the drama, based on Michael Marshall Smith’s 2007 novel The Intruders, is James Frain. Written by Glen Morgan, The Intruders is about a secret society devoted to chasing immortality by seeking refuge in the bodies of others. It centers on ex-cop Jack Whalen (Simms) who has escaped a dark, violent past for a seemingly quiet life with his wife, Amy (Sorvino, who will play 2 characters in the same body). When she goes missing, Jack starts an investigation that forces him to confront his past. Frain will play Richards Shepherd, a murderer on a 20-year secret mission who claims to be an FBI agent. Sorvino, repped by ICM Partners, Management 360 and Lichter Grossman, will segue to The Intruders after wrapping her recurring role on TNT’s Falling Skies.
Rick Cosnett and Danielle Panabaker have been cast in The Flash. From Deadline:

Cosnett stars as star Detective Eddie Thawne, a recent transfer to the Central City Police Department, whose past is a mystery and who harbors a dark secret. Panabaker plays Caitlin Snow, a highly intelligent bioengineering expert who lost her fiancÚ during an explosion at S.T.A.R. Labs.
Kristen Connolly and Kathleen York have been cast in Tin Man. Connolly plays Katie Piper, the public defender who represents the robot accused of murder, while York plays Wendy, a robot that's the idealized version of the perfect wife.
