EXCLUSIVE: Cherry Jones, who won an Emmy for her role on Fox’s 24, is reuniting with the show’s showrunner Howard Gordon and studio 20th Century Fox TV. Jones is set to co-star opposite Jason Isaacs in NBC’s drama pilot REM, from creator/exec producer Kyle Killen and 20th TV. The project, described as an Inception-style thriller, centers on Detective Mark Britten (Isaacs), who wakes up after an accident to find he is living in two different realities, one in which he has killed his son Rex and one in which he has killed his wife Hannah in a car accident. Jones will play Dr. Stephanie Evans, Mark’s shrink in the reality in which his wife has been killed. Gordon, who cast Jones in her Emmy-winning role as President Alison Taylor on 24, serves as executive producer/showrunner on REM. David Slade is directing/exec producing.
24‘s Marci Michelle is also working on the pilot which is getting a lot of praise from those who read the script.
