Gossellaar stars as Brad Wolgast, an FBI agent assigned to escort Amy to Project Noah, "a secret, government-funded, medical research facility in Colorado, where a drug is being tested that turns people into lethal killing machines but also unleashes psychic abilities."

Filming begins this month in Atlanta. (Deadline.com)

Semple herself is penning the project with Red Om Films' Roberts and Annapurna Television's Megan Ellison and Sue Naegle also executive producing. (Deadline.com)
