Shelton Joins Bruckheimer’s Eleventh Hour


Marley Shelton (Grindhouse) has been tapped as the female lead opposite Rufus Sewell in Jerry Bruckheimer’s new CBS drama “Eleventh Hour,” says The Hollywood Reporter.

The project, based on the limited British sci-fi series, 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 “Ugly Betty’s” Ashley Jensen.

The CBS version, which is set in the U.S., was written by Mick Davis and will be directed by Danny Cannon.
