“Prison Break” alum Frank Grillo has landed the lead in ABC’s supernatural crime drama series “The Gates,” writes the Hollywood Reporter. Luke Mably, Janina Gavankar and Chandra West also have been cast in the project, which Terry McDonough has come on board to direct. Written by Richard Hatem and Grant Scharbo, “Gates” centers on a big-city cop (Grillo) who becomes chief of police in a seemingly sleepy planned community only to discover there’s much more to the residents than meets the eye. The series is being eyed for a summer launch. Mably (“The Prince and Me”) will play one of the residents, a cardiologist who is a vampirelike creature. Gavankar (“The L Word”) will play a local cop with a dark secret. West (“90210”) will play the owner of a tea shop. The project is slated to begin production in late March in Louisiana.
