Jeananne Goossen has booked the female lead in FOX’s untitled Keven Williamson project. The actress will star opposite Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy.
The project is described as a teeth grinding suspensful thriller about a diabolical serial killer who uses technology to create a cult of serial killers. A retired FBI profiler (Bacon) finds himself with the burden of locating the murderers and solving the case.
Gossen will play Jennifer Mason, a strong-minded agent who partners with the retired FBI profiler.
Goossen can be seen now on FOX’s drama Alcatraz and in the hit romance film The Vow.
Lucy Liu will play Sherlock Holmes’ sidekick, Joan Watson, in CBS’s take on the classic detective story. The show will have a modern New York City backdrop and the role of Holmes will be played by Johnny Lee Miller.
Holmes travels to New York in search of treatment for an addiction. Now living in the big apple he meets his sober companion, Watson, a former surgeon who lost her license after a patient died in her care.
Robert Doherty will pen the script and executive produce along with Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly.
Liu is currently starring in Southland as Officer Jessica Tang.
