Carla Gugino has joined Matt Dillon in the cast of M. Night Shyamalan’s first television series Wayward Pines, which is coming to Fox next summer.

Gugino will take the role of Kate Hewson, Ethan’s (Dillon) ex-Secret Service partner and a resident of Wayward Pines. The character is described as smart, capable, loyal, fiery, blunt and fearless, while the relationship that Kate and Ethan previously shared simmers below the surface of their current dynamic.

Starring Dillon and Oscar-winner Melissa Leo, based on the novel of the same name by Blake Crouch and written by Chad Hodge, ‘Wayward Pines’ follows Secret Service agent Ethan Burke as he travels to Wayward Pines, Idaho on a mission to find two missing federal agents. The series is said to be in the vein of Twin Peaks.
