Deadline is reporting that Star Trek: Voyager and Body of Proof star Jeri Ryan is set for a leading role in NBC’s new pilot Suspicion, where she will star alongside Derek Luke (13 Reasons Why) and Paula Newsome (How to Get Away with Murder).
Created by Jessica Goldberg (The Path) and based on the book by Joseph Finder, the pilot is described as “a Hitchcockian thriller” and follows Danny Goodman (Luke), who “after accepting a handshake loan from his new friend and millionaire neighbor, Tom Canter, gets a visit from the FBI and learns that the decision is one he will regret for the rest of his life. Coerced to work as an informant for the FBI to earn back his freedom, Danny is forced to infiltrate a world of violence and corruption while trying to protect his family.”
Ryan is set to portray Celina, the wife of Tom Canter, who “knows how to host the party to end all parties but still manages to stay humble and down to earth.”
Ryan was most recently seen in the recurring role of Veronica Allen in Amazon Studios’ Bosch.
