Rufus Sewell will have something nice to stare at in Jerry Bruckheimer's new CBS drama Eleventh Hour. The network has recently tapped Marley Shelton to play the female lead.
Marley Shelton for Eleventh Hour
Based on the limited British sci-fi series, Eleventh Hour centers on Jacob Hood (Sewell), a special science adviser to the government who, with his feisty female bodyguard Rachel (Shelton) in tow, saves people from the worst abuses of science.
In the original series, the roles were played by Patrick Stewart and Ashley Jensen.
Danny Cannon will direct off a script penned by Mick Davis.
We last saw Shelton in the Rodriguez/Tarantino production Grindhouse. We can next se her in the indie film Our Lady of Victory.
