Cast set for ‘Diamond’ mini

Flanery, Scheider, Milano to topline

Thesps Sean Patrick Flanery, Roy Scheider and Alyssa Milano will topline the four-hour miniseries “Diamond Hunters,” which begins shooting in South Africa May 15.

Deals were negotiated by Guido DeAngelis, the producer and exec producer of the project. Also signed on are producer Steven North and helmer Dennis Berry.

“Hunters,” based on Wilbur Smith’s eponymous bestseller, follows the adventures of a diamond prospector played by Flanery (“Body Shots”). Scheider will play the patriarch of a family-owned diamond dynasty. Milano will assume the role of Scheider’s daughter, who becomes romantically linked to Flanery.

While the mini has yet to be purchased in the U.S., a broadcast deal has been made with France’s TF1.
