Quartet going 'Mental' for FtvS


Jacqueline McKenzie, Derek Webster, Nicholas Gonzalez and Marisa Ramirez round out the cast of the Fox TV Studios drama "Mental."

Production on the 13-episode series, which stars Chris Vance and Annabella Sciorra, began Monday in Bogota, Colombia.

FtvS is co-financing "Mental" with Fox International Channels, which will broadcast it on its channels. FtvS will shop it to U.S. networks this year.

"Mental" centers on a rebellious psychiatrist (Vance).

McKenzie, repped by Paradigm and the Burnstein Co., plays an ambitious psychiatrist. Webster (Progressive Artists and Main Title) will play a politically motivated doctor. Gonzalez (Pakula/King) will play an arrogant resident. Ramirez (Diverse Talent) will play a doctor with attitude. (partialdiff)
