TORONTO - Canadian producers Muse Entertainment and Back Alley Films have added Charlotte Hegele, Sebastian Pigott and Peter Outerbridge (ReGenesis) to the talent lineup for Bomb Girls, the 6-part drama about women at work in a Second World War bomb factory.
The series will see Hegele play a preacher’s daughter, and Pigott as the fiancé to a free-wheeling socialite-turned-bomb girl.
And Outerbridge will be the husband of the Bomb Girls lead, Meg Tilly (Agnes of God, The Big Chill), who plays the previously-announced role of munitions factory supervisor.
Bomb Girls is set to debut on Global Television in early 2012.
Series showrunners Michael MacLennan and Adrienne Mitchell jointly created the Canadian drama, and share executive producer credits with Muse’s Michael Prupas (The Kennedys) and Janis Lundman of Back Alley Films.
Bomb Girls is directed by Mitchell, Ken Girotti (Rescue Me, Law & Order: Criminal Intent) and Anne Wheeler.
Muse Distribution International is selling the series internationally.
