Eleventh Hour USA

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Reuters, and other sources, Planet Terror's Marley Shelton is the latest addition to the Eleventh Hour lineup.

Marley Shelton has been tapped as the female lead opposite Rufus Sewell in Jerry Bruckheimer's new CBS drama "Eleventh Hour."

The project, based on the limited British sci-fi series, centers on Jacob Hood (Sewell), a special science adviser to the government who, with his feisty female bodyguard Rachel (Shelton) in tow, saves people from the worst abuses of science.

In the original series, the roles were played by Patrick Stewart and "Ugly Betty's" Ashley Jensen.

The CBS version, which is set in the U.S., was penned by Mick Davis and will be directed by Danny Cannon.

Davis, Cannon, Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman and a Granada executive are executive producing for Jerry Bruckheimer TV, Granada International Media and Warner Bros. TV.

Shelton most recently starred in Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino's "Grindhouse." The actress, repped by Endevor and Untitled Entertainment, next appears in the indie "Our Lady of Victory."

Great to see how it's coming together. But you're right from before mentioning how one name is missing from all the reporting.

After all, they've hinted at it twice now. Shouldn't they stop with the big tease and give a name to the 'Granada executive'.
