Deadline reports that “True Blood’s” Kevin Alejandro, pictured right, is set as a regular opposite Mark Pellegrino in Carlton Cuse’s 10-episode A&E drama series “The Returned.”
Also co-starring in the project, an adaptation of the acclaimed French series, are Sophie Lowe and Mat Vairo.
Keith Gordon (“Dexter”) will direct.
“ ‘The Returned’ focuses on a small town that is turned upside down when several local people, who have been long presumed dead suddenly reappear, bringing with them both positive and detrimental consequences.”
Alejandro will play the town’s authoritative but accessible sheriff Tommy Moran. Lowe plays Lena, one of Jack’s (Pellegrino) two daughters. Vairo plays one of the returned, Simon, a musician who comes back 10 years after his death.
