Carmen Ejogo, Rochelle Aytes Join Casts of ABC Dramas "Zero Hour" + "Mistresses"

Deadline is reporting that Carmen Ejogo and Rochelle Aytes have been cast in roles for two planned ABC drama series, Zero Hour and Mistresses, respectively.

Zero Hour centers on Hank Foley who, after spending 20 years as the editor of Modern Skeptics magazine, becomes involved in one the most compelling conspiracies in human history when his wife is kidnapped.  Ejogo will play the FBI agent investigating the kidnapping who may have her own agenda.

Mistresses, a U.S. version of the popular British format that has been previously seen on BBC America, is described as a provocative thrilling drama that finds four women with scandalous romantic lives, caught in storms of excitement and self-discovery, secrecy and betrayal, and at the mercy of the complex relationships they’ve created.  Aytes has been cast as April, a recent widow raising two daughters and running a high-end linen shop on Robertson Boulevard.  A 2009 Lifetime Channel pilot based on the same series also featured Aytes in a lead role.  Mistresses is looking at a summer 2013 debut.

Hooray for Carmen and boo for Rochelle; that woman is terrible! She's another Paula Patton (maybe worse), just getting pass after pass…


Good for Rochelle! Glad she bounced back from the fiasco show cancellation of Working It.
