Frances Fisher and Ivan Sergei have joined the cast of USA Network's tentatively titled pilot To Love and Die in L.A.
The project centers on a fun-loving thirtysomething (Shiri Appleby) with abandonment issues who becomes convinced that her dating problems would be resolved if only she could track down the father (Tim Matheson) she never knew. When she finds him, she discovers that he's an assassin and that she may have found her calling.
Fisher will portray Janet, the mother of Appleby's character, and Sergei will star as Blue, a potential love interest for Appleby's character who also works for her father.
Principal photography on the pilot is set to begin November 6 in Vancouver.
Fisher's recent credits include the films Laws of Attraction and House of Sand and Fog as well as appearances on ABC's Grey's Anatomy and NBC's ER.
Sergei's credits include roles on NBC's Crossing Jordan and WB Network's Charmed and Jack & Jill. On the film side, he recently appeared in The Break-Up.
