Emily Rose finds ‘Haven’

Actress cast as lead in SyFy series

SyFy has cast Emily Rose (“John From Cincinnati”) as the lead in its upcoming series “Haven,” which the network said will premiere later this year.

Based on the Stephen King novella “The Colorado Kid,” “Haven” will begin production in the spring in Canada.

Rose will play FBI agent Audrey Parker, who investigates a murder in the small town of Haven, Maine and finds herself caught up in a web of supernatural activity among its citizens.

Rose has had several key recurring roles since appearing as Cass on “John From Cincinnati.” She played Lena Branigan on “Brothers and Sisters,” Trish Merrick on “Jericho” and Tracy Martin on “ER.” She was also the lead in the USA pilot “Operating Instructions.”

E1 Entertainment is producing “Haven,” which is cofinanced by Universal Networks Intl. and is the first series to be produced for SyFy’s international outlets (except in Scandinavia and, ironically, Canada). E1 is handling international distribution.

Scott Shepard (“The Dead Zone”) is the series’ showrunner, with Lloyd Segan, Shawn Piller and E1’s John Morayniss and Noreen Halpern exec producing. Pilot scribes Sam Ernst and Jim Dunn also are exec producers.
