Tracy Spiridakos To Play The Lead In Fox Pilot 'Recon', Alexander Siddig To Co-Star
Former Revolution star Tracy Spiridakos has landed the lead in Recon, Fox's drama pilot executive produced by The Vampire Diaries' co-developers/exec producers Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec. Set to co-star opposite Spiridakos in the pilot, written by TVD exec producer Caroline Dries, is Alexander Siddig (Game of Thrones).
Recon centers on Alexa (Spiridakos), a young, driven FBI analyst tasked with embedding herself in a suspected terrorist family. Siddig plays her target Omar, a father, husband and devout Muslim who has no idea the Feds have been tracking his every move.
Dries wrote the script and is exec producing with Williamson and Plec through Warner Bros. TV and Williamson’s Outerbanks Entertainment.
The project reunited Spiridakos with WBTV, the studio behind NBC's Revolution. She is repped by WME and Authentic. Siddig, who plays Doran Martell on HBO's GOT, also had a role on Starz's Da Vinci's Demons. He is repped by Markham, Froggatt & Irwin.
