Tradecraft: Rick Schroder Joins Fox's Karyn Usher Teen Spy Pilot
Deadline reports that 24's Rick Schroder has joined Fox's still-untitled, Hanna-like teen spy pilot from Karyn Usher playing the CIA agent father of the orphaned teen lead, Jane Forsythe (Saxon Sharbino). Wait... so I guess he's dead? Perhaps he'll be around in flashbacks, like Sean Bean's dead character on Missing. (That's not a spoiler; like this, it was announced from the very start, and it happens before the credits of the pilot. And I wouldn't be surprised if the character eventually turns out to be less dead than first thought anyway.) As previously reported, Julian McMahon and Angela Bassett round out the cast. Schroder's last spy pilot, Meet Jane, was not picked up by Lifetime.
