HEATHER LIND IN "TURN" HISTORICAL SHOW
Yet, another of the upcoming historical shows we are anticipating - TURN has a new cast member. Young Heather Lind will join Jamie Bell in the story set in the summer of 1778 which tells the story of New York farmer Abe Woodhull (Jamie Bell), who bands together with a group of childhood friends to form The Culper Ring, an unlikely group of spies who turn the tide in America’s fight for independence. Heather, whom you might have seen in BOARDWALK EMPIRE before, will play Anna Strong, the beautiful wife of the local tavern owner who is Abe’s first love, and clearly there is still a tension between the two.
ROBERT BUCKLEY IN "HOLDING PATTERNS" SITCOM

"Deadline" reports that HOLDING PATTERNS will be an ensemble multi camera comedy about a group of friends whose lives completely change after they survive a plane crash. Robert Buckley will play one of them, Chad, Griffin’s (Humphrey Ker) and Leah’s (Chyler Leight) arrogant, misogynistic friend, now a successful chick-lit author who returns home for the wedding.
