TV: “Battlestar Galactica” Vet Investigates ‘Hemlock Grove’

Aaron Douglas (“Battlestar Galactica,” “The Bridge”) has joined the Netflix series Hemlock Grove as Sheriff Sworn, the local lawman investigating a young girl’s gruesome murder in a Pennsylvania steel town, reports Deadline.

Based on a novel by Brian McGreevy, “Hemlock Grove” stars Famke Janssen and Dougray Scott, and the initial episode will be directed by Hostel and Cabin Fever‘s Eli Roth.

It revolves around the murder of a young girl found close to the former Godfrey steel mill. The suspects in her killing include Peter (Landon Liboiron), a 17-year-old Gypsy kid from the wrong side of the tracks, and Roman (Bill Skarsgard), the arrogant Godfrey Scion, whose sister Shelley is disturbingly deformed and whose mother, Olivia (Janssen), is the beautiful and controlling grand dame of Hemlock Grove.

The Gaumont International series begins filming next week in Toronto.
