'Conspiracy' grows with pilot castings


Jonathan Scarfe, Gabriel Olds, Kevin Rahm, Aisha Hinds, Benjamin Burdick and Sam Anderson have joined star Lisa Sheridan in Lifetime's drama pilot "Conspiracy."

The project, from Fox TV Studios, centers on Samantha Cross (Sheridan), a young Washington lawyer who, after winning a highly publicized case for a large pharmaceutical company, realizes that she was given falsified documents and that her client was guilty. As she seeks the truth and puts her life in danger, she learns that her prestigious law firm is the enemy and the conspiracy is much bigger than the initial case. Scarfe will play Cross' ex-boyfriend, to whom she turns for help with investigating the cover-up. Olds will play Cross' current boyfriend, a Washington mover and shaker who wants to protect her from the dangerous circumstances surrounding her. Burdick will play a reporter for the Washington Post who is doing a profile on Cross. Rahm will play a rising star at the firm where Cross works who has a thing for her. Anderson will play the driving force behind the law firm, and Hinds will play Cross' roommate and resident rebel.

Scarfe will next be seen in the feature "The Poet," while Hinds will be seen in the feature "Mr. Brooks." Both are repped by Joy Keller and Michael Greene at Greene & Associates.

Rahm, who co-starred in NBC's comedy pilot "Alpha Mom" this past development season, is repped by the Gersh Agency and Forward Entertainment.

Olds, who co-starred on the WB Network's drama "D.C.," is repped by Innovative Artists.
