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.


In Season 4, which has started production for a spring 2017 premiere, star Cole Hauser is joined by Meaghan Rath (Being Human, New Girl), who will play a new female lead alongside recent cast addition Ashley Greene. Rogue, from Entertainment One, will finish its run with its 50th episode. (The series’ supersized third season featured 20 episodes, the rest were 10 each.)

Created by Matthew Parkhill, Rogue was DirecTV/Audience’s first homegrown original drama series. In the fourth season, the show will move back to San Francisco as characters seek revenge and redemption. During his quest to slay his past ghosts, Ethan Kelly (Hauser) falls into a hellish labyrinth of criminality and betrayal by the police. Meanwhile, Mia Rochlan (Greene) seeks revenge and will stop at nothing to make Ethan pay for double-crossing her. Rath plays Clea Annou, a sharp San Francisco police detective with relentless dedication to her job and her family.

“Rogue has been a tentpole for Audience Network since its launch and has developed a devoted fan base that has fallen in love the with its characters,” said Christopher Long, SVP, Original Content and Production at AT&T. “The final season will not disappoint and promises to deliver all of the intensity and powerful drama-filled storylines the show is known for.”

Rogue is produced by eOne in association with DirecTV. Parkhill serves as showrunner and executive produces with John Morayniss of eOne, Nick Hamm and Michael Rosenberg. EOne handles the worldwide rights to the series in all media.

Rath recently starred on the Fox comedy series Cooper Barrett’s Guide To Surviving Life, and Hauser was in the movie Olympus Has Fallen.


None of the new comedy series introduced by Fox this season will make it to second season. The network has moved in to cancel freshmen Grandfathered, starring John Stamos, and The Grinder, starring Rob Lowe. They are joined by midseason entries Cooper Barrett’s Guide To Surviving Live and the animated Bordertown, which also are not continuing.

Darby Stanchfield, Emily Bett Rickards, and Meaghan Rath have been cast in “Slumber,” a psychological sci-fi thriller from Diablo Entertainment.

The story of a woman who must piece together her past and find her missing daughter after waking up from a coma is directed by Darrell Wheat (“Recovery”). It’s being billed as a hybrid of “Jacob’s Ladder” and “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.”

Stanchfield is best know for playing White House spin master Abby Whelan on ABC’s “Scandal” and for her recurring role as the Drapers’ neighbor Helen Bishop on “Made Men.” Rickards is a fanboy favorite from her work as Felicity Smoak on the CW show “Arrow,” where she plays the title character’s love interest and ally. Rath has starred in Syfy’s “Being Human” and is currently in Fox’s “Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life.”

Chris Mulkey (“Whiplash”), Richard Harmon (“The 100”), Isaiah Mustafa (“Shadowhunters”) and Lulu Wilson (“Ouija 2”) round out the cast. Diablo’s Eric B. Fleischman and Sean Tabibian are producing and financing the feature which is set to begin production this summer in Los Angeles. The company made a stir at Sundance this year, fielding the magician thriller “Sleight,” which sold to WWE Studios and Blumhouse Productions.

Stanchfield is represented by Principal Entertainment LA, Rickards is represented by Lucas Talent and Alchemy Entertainment, and Rath is represented by The Kohner Agency and Hess Entertainment.
