Former Dexter star Julia Stiles is set to continue her run in gritty crime dramas with a starring role in the NBC pilot Midnight Sun.

The thriller — which is being adapted from the Israeli format by FlashForward‘s Lisa Zwerling — revolves around an investigation into mysterious disappearances within a group living on a cult-like commune in Alaska. As first reported by Deadline, Stiles will play Leah Kafka, an FBI cult specialist leading the investigation that ultimately uncovers a larger conspiracy.

The Walking Dead‘s Emma Bell has also joined the cast, playing the daughter of Lost alum Titus Welliver’s manipulative cult leader. »
