Melissa Sagemiller

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.

Sagemiller plays a love interest for Ealy.
