Michael Rymer has come on board to direct the first episode of the mystery drama, created by McQuarrie and showrunner Remi Aubuchon. The project revolves around a group of strangers who wake up in a deserted town with no recollection of how they got there, only to realize that they are watched by omnipresent security cameras. To escape, they must work together to solve a surreal puzzle.
Wiles will play Joe, the leader of the group. In her U.S. debut, the Australian Betts will play single mother Janet, who joins forces with Joe to get back to her child.
