Former Love Child star Harriet Dyer has landed her US break, cast as the female lead in In Between Lives, a drama pilot for NBC.
The series from writer Moira Kirland, Heyday Television — the joint venture of Harry Potter and Paddington producer David Heyman and NBCUniversal International Studios — and Universal TV.
Written by Moira Kirland, it centres on Cassie (Dyer), a mysterious young woman who reluctantly uses her gift of clairvoyance to help a veteran LAPD detective and a damaged ex-FBI outsider solve the most unnerving and challenging cases the city encounters.
This eerie ability also opens the door for her to see and talk to the dead, who are seeking help for unresolved problems, whether she likes it or not.
Cassie is described as a lovely young woman haunted by hallucinations of vicious crimes, both past and present.
Dyer was most recently praised for her performance in Stan’s The Other Guy.
