NBC's Babylon Fields has enlisted a Jericho alum.

Skeet Ulrich will play identical twin brothers in the drama starring Meagan Good, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

The drama, from Gerald Cuesta, centers on the dead rising again in Babylon, N.Y., where lives are regained, old wounds are reopened and families are restored -- for better or worse. The newly regenerated bodies are healing faster and growing stronger, prompting discussion that this might be the next step in human evolution.

Ulrich will play Father Harries, a local priest, and his twin brother, Graham, a junkie when alive, who returns from the dead.

Cuesta will write the script and executive produce alongside Michael Atkinson and Michael Cuesta, the latter of whom will direct the 20th Century Fox Television pilot.

The casting keeps Ulrich (Robot Chicken, Law & Order: Los Angeles) in the 20th TV family; he starred in the network's passed-over Howard Gordon drama Anatomy of Violence last year. Ulrich is repped by UTA and Brillstein. He is currently shooting the independent feature Lost in Austin and will next be seen in the indie feature 50 to 1.
