Jason Isaacs Lands Lead Role in NBC's 'REM'
Jason Isaacs has been cast in the NBC pilot, REM, from Lone Star creator Kyle Killen, The Hollywood Reporter confirms.
REM, a procedural hybrid from 20th TV, centers on the simultaneous and parallel lives of a detective (Isaacs) who can't let go of any aspect of his fractured family after a car accident.
REM will be run by 24 showrunner Howard Gordon.
Isaacs toplined Fox's pilot Pleading Guilty, also backed by 20th TV, last year.
The British actor starred in the Showtime series Brotherhood with current Chicago Code star Jason Clarke. If REM makes it to series and Code is renewed for a second season, the co-stars could be reunited on the small screen.
Isaacs is repped by Gersh, The Collective and Independent Talent. He next appears as Lucius Malfoy in the last Harry Potter film and lends his voice for Cars 2.
