It’s (end)game on for Morena Baccarin…
NBC has handed a series order to the bank heist drama The Endgame, starring the 42-year-old Brazilian actress and Ryan Michelle Bathe.
The drama comes from Nick Wootton, Jake Coburn, Justin Lin and Julie Plec.
Universal Television is the studio.
Written by Wootton and Coburn, the formerly untitled project is a high-stakes thriller about Elena Federova, a very recently captured international arms dealer and brilliant criminal mastermind who even in captivity orchestrates a number of coordinated bank heists, and Val Turner, the principled, relentless and socially outcast FBI agent who will stop at nothing to foil her ambitious plan.
Homeland alum Baccarin plays Federova, while First Wives Club’s Bathe plays Turner.
The cast also includes Kamal Angelo Bolden, Costa Ronin, Noah Bean, Jordan Johnson-Hinds and Mark D. Espinoza.
It’s not clear whether the series will air in the 2021-22 broadcast season, which includes new dramas including La Brea and Ordinary Joe.
