Hello everyone! Remember how we reported in October last year that Sophia had signed a talent development deal with 20th Century Fox TV? We finally have news on her first project! She has been cast as the lead in Surveillance, an upcoming spy thriller drama from The Passage and Batman‘s Matt Reeves, writer David C. White (Sons of Liberty), director Patricia Riggen (Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan) and 20th Century Fox TV, which will co-produce with CBS TV Studios. Sophia shared the following on twitter after the announcement was made: “This what I’ve been up to this year, fam. Developing this project. Getting this character that feels like she already lives in my bones ready for you. I am so excited to finally be able to share this “blockbuster commitment” with all of you!!”. We are so excited, and so proud of Sophia!

DEADLINE EXCLUSIVE: Chicago PD alumna Sophia Bush is returning to television. In one of the biggest sales so far this pitch season, CBS has given a production commitment to Surveillance, a spy thriller drama starring Bush, from The Passage and Batman‘s Matt Reeves, writer David C. White (Sons of Liberty), director Patricia Riggen (Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan) and 20th Century Fox TV, which will co-produce with CBS TV Studios.

While the deal is for a production commitment, I hear 20th TV is in the process of hiring a casting director, and the intent is to film a pilot later this fall. This marks a big breakthrough in the relationship between CBS and 20th TV — it is the network’s first buy from 20th TV in almost three years, since the 2015-16 development season. It would be the first 20th TV-produced pilot at CBS since Life In Pieces in spring 2015.

Written by White, with Riggen set to direct, Surveillance is described as a complex and timely spy thriller centered around the head of communications for the NSA (Bush), a charming operative who finds her loyalties torn between protecting the government’s secrets and her own. Reeves executive produces via his 6th & Idaho production company alongside Riggen; White co-executive produces.

A different incarnation of the project from White and Reeves was originally set up at Fox last season for development but did not go to pilot. With Terence Carter, who had bought the pitch as head of drama development at Fox last season, moving to 20th TV to head development there, the script was rewritten, and the studio brought Bush and Riggen on board before taking the package out.

Bush’s involvement stems from an exclusive talent holding and development deal she signed with 20th TV last fall. Reeves and his 6th & Idaho also have been under a deal at 20th TV, while Riggen this past season directed the studio’s legal drama pilot Proven Innocent, which went to series at Fox. CBS and 20th TV have a long tradition of doing business together that yielded a number of long-running hits, most recently comedy How I Met Your Mother. As CBS stepped up its efforts to increase ownership in its programming several years go, the relationship between the two companies became strained though the network still ordered Life In Pieces to pilot and then to series during the 2014-15 development season. Renewal negotiations on the family comedy have been difficult and it was on the bubble this past spring but clinched a Season 4 midseason order.

During the 2015-16 season, CBS gave a big put pilot commitment to a 20th TV crime drama from Matt Nix and Amy Holden Jones. It got an informal pilot order which was scrapped as the network and studio could not agree on co-production terms. There had been a dry spell since. While there had been signs of a thaw in the relationship between the two companies following the 2016 dustup, and CBS had been taking 20th TV pitches, there had been no 20th TV sales to CBS the last two seasons, until the blockbuster commitment for Surveillance this week. 20th TV will soon become part of Disney as part of Disney’s pending acquisition of key Fox assets.

Reeves executive produces 20th TV’s high-profile new drama series for Fox The Passage. The Felicity co-creator also wrote and directed War for the Planet of the Apes, directed Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Cloverfield and has been working on a Batman movie. He is repped by CAA, 3 Arts, and attorney Karl Austen. Riggen also helmed the USA/Syfy pilot Run For Your Life, multiple episodes of Amazon’s Jack Ryan and the feature Miracles From Heaven. She is repped by CAA and Brillstein Entertainment Partners. White also is with CAA.

This marks a return to series television for One Tree Hill and Chicago PD star Bush, who a year ago exited the NBC cop drama after playing Detective Erin Lindsay for four seasons. She had sought major changes on the set of the series, which had been described as a tough environment for a female performer. They are believed to be, at least in part, related to series star Jason Beghe’s “inappropriate behavior,” which NBC later investigated. Before that, Bush starred on the long-running drama series One Tree Hill, which aired for nine seasons on the WB and the CW. Bush recently signed on as a lead in the indie Hard Luck Love Song. Her film credits also include Acts of Violence, Incredibles 2 and the cult hit John Tucker Must Die. She’s repped by CAA, Untitled and Jackoway Austen.

Hello everyone! This summer it was announced that Sophia had been cast as Carla in the new film “Hard Luck Love Song“, starring Eric Roberts, Michael Dorman and Dermot Mulroney. I haven’t been able to work on the site as much as I wanted the last few months due to other commitments, so I haven’t had the chance to post about this until now – I’m sorry about the delay! The film is directed by Justin Corsbie, and currently has the status as post-production. We don’t have a release date yet or any official posters or stills, but I have update our gallery with several photos of Sophia on the set taken by the cast and crew over the summer. Big thanks to my friend at Jen Lilley Fan for helping me collect all these! As soon as any new information on the film is released, I will keep you updated. There will also be more “Chicago P.D” screencaps updates, and I will continue adding more high quality event photos as soon as time allows me to, stay tuned.

Jesse, a charismatic but down on his luck troubadour, finds himself at an existential crossroads as his bad decisions catch up with him. His world spins into further upheaval after a chance encounter with Carla, an old flame. Their toxic past, Carla’s own personal demons, and Jesse’s current troubles threaten to destroy their blissful reunion. Ultimately, the story hinges on whether these profoundly flawed characters have the ability to navigate through their past and overcome the tumultuous forces that threaten to drag them down.

Hello everyone! Sophia has used her voice to give support to the Reform L.A. Jails project several times in the past, and they have now updated their official youtube account with a new video of Sophia talking about the initiative. Reform L.A. Jails is a coalition of jail and prison experts, public safety and criminal justice reform leaders, residents, business owners and the community at large working to pass the Reform Jails and Community Reinvestment Initiative – you can read more about it below! I love how passionate she is about causes like this, and how she devotes so much time to support and promote them. Check out the video below…

The Reform Jails and Community Reinvestment Initiative does two things. First, it will ensure that the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department Civilian Oversight Commission has the tools necessary to do its job. The initiative would grant the Commission subpoena power to effectively and independently investigate misconduct and require the attendance of witnesses and production of evidence connected to their investigations and oversight.

Subpoena power would allow the Commission to compel personnel to give testimony regarding practices in the department. Sheriff Jim McDonnell has been proactive in addressing misconduct and has been met with staunch resistance by the sheriff’s union. If the Sheriff himself is limited by his own department, then it is imperative for the Commission to have the power to proactively identify misconduct. That means subpoena power.

Second, the initiative will task the Civilian Oversight Commission with developing a Comprehensive Public Safety Reinvestment Plan and Feasibility Study to reduce jail populations and to redirect the cost savings into alternatives to incarceration. This paves the way for the County of Los Angeles to reduce recidivism, prevent crime, and permanently reduce the population of people cycling in and out of jail that are experiencing mental health, drug dependency, or chronic homelessness issues.

Powered by Reform L.A. Jails, The Reform Jails and Community Reinvestment Initiative is a sensible approach to develop a new public safety strategy to save County resources and to protect, restore, and strengthen our communities.

The Plan will identify needed prevention and treatment programs to stop crime cycles and will map out steps to create a new public safety approach to bring Los Angeles County into alignment with best practices to reduce crime by redirecting resources.

Most people in Los Angeles County jails are awaiting trial or were sentenced for nonviolent offenses. Many have unaddressed mental health or substance abuse issues and many are homeless upon release. Los Angeles County has the largest population of people in jail with mental illness of any jail system in the country and urgently needs a more effective strategy to stop the cycle of crime and to save County resources. | Source
