Angela Bassett To Co-Star In Untitled Fox Pilot

nullAs I've stated before, this is the time of year when alll the commerical TV networks announce casting picks for pilot projects for next season. And from the numerous postings we've made lately on S & A, it seems that a lot of black actors and especially actresses are getting cast in important roles in pilots now in development or about to begin shooting

Now, of course, how many of these pilots actually get greenlit and go on to become a regular series is anyone's guess. The survival rate is prettly slim, but at least they're getting gigs and, who knows, one or two might make it.

So with all that here's another casting announcement that Angela Bassett will co-star with Nip/Tuck's Julian McMahon for an as yet untitled pilot for the Fox Network to be directed by Brett Ratner.

The pilot, which sounds like a blatant rip-off of Hanna, revolves around a 14 year old girl, who's the daughter of a dead CIA operative with McMahon playing a rouge agent who becomes the girl's father figure and teaches her the facts of life about the dangerous spy world.

Bassett will play "the calculating director of the CIA who takes the girl under her wing."
