The actress who portrayed Anna Nicole Smith in a recent Lifetime biopic is on board for another A&E Networks project.
Agnes Bruckner will co-star opposite Josh Lucas(“American Psycho”) and Lynn Collins (“X-Men Origins: Wolverine”) in drama pilot “Occult.”
“Occult” will be produced by Michael Bay (“Transformers”) and written by James Wong (“The X-Files”).
In “Occult” Dolan (played by Lucas) is an FBI agent returning from administrative leave after losing it while investigating his wife’s disappearance. Lucas is paired with Noa Blair (played by Collins), who has her own complicated back story and specializes in the occult. The pair will investigate cases for the newly-formed occult crimes task force.
Bruckner plays Lucy, a beautiful and wild girl caught up in the occult. She rose from the autopsy table after being shot in the heart, now possessed and ready to join her fellow cultists.
Wong will exec produce with Bay and his Platinum Dunes partners Andrew Form and Brad Fuller, while ABC Studios produces.
Bruckner has also appeared on “Murder By Numbers” and “Haven.”
Bruckner is represented by APA and Oren Segal of MPE.
A&E has also picked up scripted drama “Those Who Kill,” starring Chloe Sevigny and James D’Arcy.
