He wields his skills as a weapon to protect the people that he cares about. Elliot will find himself in the intersection between a cybersecurity firm he works for and the underworld organizations that are recruiting him to bring down corporate America. She'll play Shayla, "a hipster neighbor in Elliot's apartment building." Christian Slater, Gloria Reuben, Portia Doubleday, Carly Chaikin and Martin Wallstrom also star. (Deadline.com)

Munic will pen the script and executive produce alongside Morgan via his 20th Century Fox Television-based Chris Morgan Productions. (Deadline.com)
