Central Casting Georgia is looking for people for a three-day casting call next week in Atlanta and Madison on an as yet untitled ABC television pilot from the writers of Desperate Housewives and Devious Maids.
According to IMDB, the project, which stars Reba McEntire, is just being referred to as "Untitled Reba McEntire Southern Drama," for now, and was created by Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry.
In the pilot, according to the description from IMDB, Ruby Adair, the sheriff of the small town of Oxblood, KY will find her red state outlook challenged when a young FBI agent of Middle Eastern descent is sent to help her solve a horrific crime. Together they form an uneasy alliance as Ruby takes the agent behind the lace curtains of this southern gothic community to meet an assortment of bizarre characters, each with a secret of their own.
The series stars McEntire, Jack Coleman (Heroes), Emily Rose (Haven), Ben Esler (Hell on Wheels), Natalie Hall (All My Children) and Saidah Ekulona (The Taking of Pelham 1-2-3).
