‘Arrow’s’ Katrina Law & Billy Zane to Star in ABC Family Drama Pilot ‘Guilt’

ABC Family has begun production on its Amanda Knox-style drama pilot “Guilt,” and has set the cast, led by Katrina Law, Billy Zane and Daisy Head as the prime suspect.

Head (“The Syndicate”) will play Grace, a young girl American girl living in London who is stunned when she becomes the top suspect in the savage murder of her roommate. Law (“Arrow,” “Spartacus: War of the Damned”) will play her sister Natalie, an attorney who drops everything when Grace becomes a murder suspect. Zane (“Titanic”) has been cast as Stan, Grace’s cocky defense attorney, who revels in conflict and enjoys winning.

The cast is rounded out by Cristian Solimeno (“Rush”), who will play D.S. Bruno, an ambitious Scotland Yard detective sergeant who is determined to get to the bottom of the murder and is immediately intrigued by Natalie; Naomi Ryan (“Guardians of the Galaxy”), who will play Gwendolyn, the crown prosecutor who is heavily involved with the case and shares a complicated history with Bruno; Kevin Ryan (“Copper”) as Patrick, whose sister Molly is the victim, so he vows revenge on her killer; Zachary Fall (“Crossing Lines”) as Luc, Grace’s drug-addicted boyfriend, who also is suspected of Molly’s murder; Simona Brown (“The Casual Vacancy”) as Roz, who was Grace and Molly’s roommate and is involved with shady dealings; newcomer Sam Cassidy as Prince Theo, a member of the royal family who secretly crossed paths with Molly; and Dinita Gohill (“The Last Train”) as Meera, a student along with f Molly and Grace who is also a reporter for the university paper.

The soapy hourlong drama hails from writer-exec producers Kathryn Price (“The Game Plan”) and Nichole Millard (“The Game Plan”). Former ABC Entertainment chief Steve McPherson will also serve as exec producer. Gary Fleder (“Kingdom,” “Scorpion”) will direct the pilot, which is a co-production of Sea to Sky Entertainment and BV Family Productions.

Pilot production on “Guilt” begins production this week in Budapest and London.
