Sandrine Holt will co-star in ABC’s pilot “The Crossing,” Variety has learned.

The “House of Cards” alum has been cast as the female lead in the drama, which is nearing a deal with her male co-lead, sources say.

In “The Crossing,” refugees from a war-torn country start showing up to seek asylum in an American town. Only the country these people are from is America and the war they are fleeing is 250 years in the future. The local sheriff with a past, a federal agent, and a mother in search of her missing refugee daughter drive the conspiracy-centered story.

The pilot was written by Dan Dworkin and Jay Beattie, who will executive produce with Jason Reed. ABC Studios is producing the pilot.

Aside from “House of Cards,” Holt is known for AMC’s “Fear the Walking Dead,” Crackle’s “The Art of More,” USA’s “Mr. Robot” and the CBS reboot of “MacGyver.”

Nashville: Connie Britton Talks About That "Lie" and Her Future on the Series

12 hours ago | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Warning: Huge Nashville Spoilers Ahoy!Well she had us fooled. Back in January, on her daytime talk show, Ellen DeGeneres asked Connie Britton about the rumors that she would only recur in the fifth season of the Nashville TV show, which was renewed by Cmt, after being unceremoniously cancelled by ABC.At the time, Britton replied, "“I’m in. I’m in for the duration.” It turns out that wasn't the duration of Nashville's Cmt run, or even the duration of season five. Now it's clear she meant another duration, entirely (revealed after the jump). Hayden Panettiere, Charles Esten, Clare Bowen, Jonathan Jackson, Sam Palladio, Chris Carmack, Lennon Stella and Maisy Stella also star.Read More… »

TV Ratings: ‘Blacklist: Redemption’ Off to Sluggish Start, ‘Htgawm’ Up in Finale

18 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As much as broadcast networks say that Nielsen’s Live+Same Day ratings are no longer of any real concern to them, there’s no denying that most midseason dramas have gotten off to a rocky start by that metric. “The Blacklist: Redemption,” the spinoff of James Spader-led “The Blacklist,” became the latest data point in that trend Thursday night. Coming out of its progenitor, “Redemption” notched a 0.8 in the 18-49 demographic and drew an average audience of 4.2 million viewers.

On the plus side for NBC, that was just one-tenth off in the demo from “The Blacklist,” which brought in a 0.9 and an audience of 4.92 million. Thursday comedies “Superstore” and “Powerless” inched down slightly from last week. “Superstore” notched a 1.1 and 3.54 million viewers, while “Powerless” drew a 0.7 and 2.3 million.

ABC cruised to its customary Shonda Rhimes-fueled victory. “Grey’s Anatomy” delivered a 2.0 in the demo and 7.61 million viewers, while »

Sleepy Hollow: Team Witness Battles Fire Genie. Molly Sees Older Ichabod.

4 hours ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

“There is more to life than amassing followers.”. This quote from Ichabod couldn’t be more ironic. On tonight’s episode of Sleepy Hollow, Team Witness fight against a Fire Djinn. Yes, you heard right, a djinn that consumes people’s lifeforce through its flames. The hour began with Malcolm sitting in a chair on the White House lawn. A choir stands before him singing what I deduce as “American the Beautiful.” I could be wrong so feel free to correct me. Then two men brought him a man in chains. The man in question turns out to be none other than Ichabod

Keeping up with the Kattarshians is a Real Show

6 hours ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

When it comes to cats, don’t ever count out any idea, ever.   But I’m pretty sure that neither I or many of you could have predicted that a show starring cats based on Keeping up with the Kardashians would ever exist.  But it does.  Oh boy.  It does.  Four kittens live in a house together. It’s scaled to be just their size. Three live webcams (and a night vision camera) follow their antics as they learn to get along with each other -or not.  This is Keeping up with the Kattarshians, an Icelandic production starring a litter of kittens who

Dear Joseph Gordon-Levitt: Don’t Play Nightwing

Of all the actors out there, one guy who I respect more than most is Joseph Gordon-Levitt.  Not only do I think he’s an incredible talent but I feel like he’s made the right role decisions in his career.  I mean we’re talking way back to when he was in A River Runs Through It as a kid.  Then his role on 30 Rock from the Sun which seems like an eternity ago.  He earned his wings on teeny bopper flicks like 10 Things I Hate about You but once we all saw him in 500 Days of Summer he

Emerald City Season 1 Episode 9 Review: “The Villain That’s Become”

7 hours ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

It can be hard for women on television, and as a woman who enjoys TV a lot, seeing the abuse of women in fictional worlds is hard to grapple with. Tonight, on Emerald City, the writers put nearly every female character through a world of pain. First, Lucas sets out to kill Dorothy under the instruction of Glinda. It’s brutal, and upsetting to watch, especially after they were lovers. I did like that Toto attacked him, that dog doesn’t get enough screen time. Later, a determined Dorothy goes to the Prison of the Abject to release the imprisoned witches. West

The second I saw this video I immediately thought of the movie Robocop.    Remember the scene when Ed 209 couldn’t walk down the stairs?  In today’s day and age I find it absolutely hilarious that the movie completely missed that or that they even made that Ed 209’s downfall.  This is what would be considered today a billion dollar military project but the smartest robotics engineers in the entire world couldn’t get this thing to be able to walk down a flight of stairs?  Awesome. Speaking of stairs, this is a video demonstration of the Minitaur quadruped robot developed by
