TNT Pilot THE DEEP MAD DARK Casts Tom Wlaschiha


TNT’s mystery drama pilot The Deep Mad Dark has cast Tom Wlaschiha (Game of Thrones).

Here’s the pilot synopsis:

When Joda appears in the field across from her building in Detroit’s north end, Dr. Polly Lewis is amused. He clears the field with a machete, and she watches a weird encampment grow as others join him. Is it an art installation? An eccentric group of squatters? In Detroit’s fallow fields, these things can happen.

But when Polly begins experiencing threatening intrusions into her life by an estranged childhood friend, her feelings about her mysterious new neighbor change. Every interaction with him confounds her. Intense and mercurial, Joda veers from menacing to jarringly insightful, even seductively warm. Is he a lost man who has battled his own demons and is trying to build an unconventional life? Or does Joda have in him the capacity for violence that Polly senses he does?

Wlaschiha will play Joda in the pilot written by Megan Martin and directed by Niels Arden.
