'Percy Jackson' actress joins A&E series

EXCLUSIVE: Serinda Swan cast in 'Breakout Kings'

Serinda Swan
Serinda Swan has landed a key role on A&E's "Breakout Kings."

Swan ("Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief") will play series regular Erica Reed, an expert at finding people who don't want to be found -- then killing them.

"Breakout Kings," about a team of former cons working with U.S. marshals, was developed at Fox, where it tested well but didn't land a series order. A&E snatched up the show in June and ordered 13 episodes.

Swan is repped by UTA and Elevate Entertainment.
