WGN America Picks Up Comedy ‘Carter’ and Drama ‘Gone’

'Carter' Debuts on August 7; 'Gone' Opens in Early 2019

WGN America unveiled two new originals: detective comedy “Carter,” starring Jerry O’Connell (“Billions”), Sydney Poitier Heartsong (“Chicago P.D.”) and Kristian Bruun (“Orphan Black”), and crime drama “Gone,” starring Chris Noth (“Sex and the City,” “Law & Order,” “The Good Wife”), Leven Ramblin (“The Hunger Games”) and Danny Pino (“CSI: Miami”).
 
“Carter” revolves around Harley Mackay (O’Connell), an actor playing a detective on a hit television show until he is forced to retreat to his sleepy hometown after an embarrassing public meltdown in Hollywood.  Now that he’s back, he taps into his acting experience to become a real-life detective, partnering with his two best friends, Sam Shaw (Heartsong) and Dave Leigh (Bruun). “Carter” will make its debut on WGN America on Tuesday, August 7.  Ten episodes have been ordered.
 
“Gone” follows the story of Kit “Kick” Lannigan (Rambin), survivor of a highly publicized child-abduction case, and Frank Novak (Noth), the FBI agent who rescued her. Determined never to fall victim again, Kick trains herself in martial arts and the use of firearms. She finds her calling when Novak persuades her to join a special task force he created dedicated to solving abductions and missing persons cases. Paired with former Army intelligence officer John Bishop (Pino), Kick brings her unique understanding of a predator’s mind to the team. The series is set to premiere in early 2019.
