Dougray Scott - H 2015

The series is based on an original story from 'The Good Wife' writer-producer Barry Schkolnick.

Hemlock Grove star Dougray Scott will be battling bad guys in Latin America in the new Televisa spy series Duality.

Mexican media company Televisa announced on Thursday that it has greenlit the English-language scripted series, which centers on an elite team of State Department, CIA and Mexican intelligence agents who wage war against villains operating out of Latin America.

Scott and Vancouver-based Kirk Shaw (The Hurt Locker) of Odyssey will executive produce.

Chris Philip, the new head of production at Televisa USA, Televisa's English-language production arm, said Duality is the first of other series to come that will utilize the combined star power of Hollywood and Latino talent.

Televisa USA is the producer behind Devious Maids, which is executive produced with Desperate Housewives alums Marc Cherry and Eva Longoria.

The company also produces ABC Family's Chasing Life and it recently said it's producing an English-language adaptation of the hit Spanish murder series, Gran Hotel.
