Rath stars as Astrid, a smart, funny, and caring mother who is feeling the pull between returning to work and stay-at-home motherhood.

Casting is still underway to find her partner James.

The eight-episode series is produced by Letterkenny producer New Metric Media.

Smeaton and Tatham will also serve as Executive Producers alongside New Metric Media founder Mark Montefiore and Rath. Beth Iley (Killjoys) serves as producer.

Supergirl’s San Diego Comic-Con panel and Saturday had quite a few interesting reveals about The CW series’ upcoming fifth season from the first trailer for the upcoming season to surprise announcements about Lex Luthor’s return for “Crisis on Infinite Earths. The CW also revealed casting information about new characters coming to National City this fall including Meaghan Rath who will be joining Supergirl as a new Brainiac-5.

Jesse Rath, who currently plays Brainiac-5 aka. Brainy on Supergirl, happens to be the actress’ real-life brother and told the audience that it was something he had been pushing for since he was cast in his role.

“[This is] something that I’ve been pitching since I got the role,” Jesse said. “You can’t talk about Brainy without talking about his family. My real-life sister will be joining the show, Meaghan Rath. She will be playing a female Brainiac-5.”

This will be Meaghan and Jesse’s fifth production co-starring together as they’ve previously appeared in 18 to Life, Aaron Stone, Prom Wars: Love Is a Battlefield, and Being Human.

Hawaii Five-0 in one fell swoop has effectively reconstituted its recently-depleted team of crimefighters.

Less than three weeks after the news broke that original cast members Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park (who played Chin Ho and Kono) were exiting ahead of Season 8, the CBS procedural has promoted longtime recurring player Ian Anthony Dale (aka Kono’s husband Adam) to series regular, while also adding to its ranks Meaghan Rath (Being Human) and relative newcomer Beulah Koale.

A trusted confidant and resource for the team, Adam Noshimuri will be recruited by McGarrett to officially work for Five-0, while Rath has been cast as Tani Rey, a hotel lifeguard who was kicked out of the Police Academy, despite being a first-rate candidate. (Word of the actress; casting leaked last week, as lookie-loos snapped photos of her filming scenes with Alex O’Loughlin and Scott Caan at a hotel pool.)

Currently starring on CBS’ summer series Salvation, Dale’s previous TV credits include Murder in the First, The Event and Day Break, while Rath’s resume includes DirecTV’s Rogue and Kingdom, Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life, Banshee and Secrets and Lies. Koale has had roles on the New Zealand series Common Ground and The Cul de Sac.

Under the cut because the video autoplays


Former Being Human star Meaghan Rath is set as the lead in The Trustee, ABC’s comedic one-hour pilot from the Smurfs writers Jay Scherick and David Ronn, Warner Bros. TV and Elizabeth Banks and Max Handelman’s studio-based Brownstone Productions.

Written by Scherick and Ronn and directed by Michael Engler, The Trustee is described as a fun, female buddy cop comedy about Eliza Radley (Rath), a driven but stubborn detective who finds unlikely help from her precinct’s trustee, a larger-than-life ex-con finishing out her prison sentence doing menial tasks for the police department. Though these two have completely opposing views on crime and punishment, a highly entertaining and successful partnership is born.

Rath, who plays a female lead on the upcoming fourth and final season of Audience Network’s drama Rogue, has been sought for pilots. Two seasons ago, she was in the rare position of being cast as a lead in two comedy pilots, Fox’s Cooper Barrett’s Guide To Surviving Life and NBC’s Truth Be Told, both of which went to series. She went on to star on Cooper Barrett, which had her in first position.

Rath, who also recurred on Fox’s New Girl, is repped by The Kohner Agency and Hess Entertainment.
