Preparing a Return to the Field

Back in March, in what has turned out to be the first of many pandemic-era Rap Sheet news wrap-up posts, we let you know that Australian actress Rebecca Breeds (Pretty Little Liars, The Originals) had been hired to play FBI agent Clarice Starling in Clarice, a forthcoming CBS-TV series inspired by Thomas Harris’ best-selling 1988 novel, The Silence of the Lambs.

Now we have further word on the casting of that crime drama.

Deadline says that Clarice, to be set in 1993—one year after the events explored in Lambs—will also feature Marnee Carpenter (Criminal Minds, Good Girls) as a series regular, with “Jayne Atkinson (Criminal Minds, House of Cards), Shawn Doyle (The Comey Rule, The Expanse), and Tim Guinee (Homeland, Elementary) … cast in recurring/guest roles.” Clarice is “slated for a midseason 2020-21 premiere.”
