Melissa Sagemiller (“The Clearing”) is set for Showtime pilot “The Cell.”
Michael Ealy and Oded Fehr lead the cast of the project, which focuses on a Black Muslim ex-con (Ealy) recruited by the FBI to infiltrate an Islamic sleeper terrorist cell in the United States.
Clark Johnson, who directed the pilot for FX’s “The Shield,” will helm the pilot, which begins shooting in August.
Sagemiller plays a love interest for Ealy.
Cyrus Voris and Ethan Reiff are the project’s writer-exec producers.
