A couple days ago we reported that The Tomorrow People‘s Robbie Amell had found a new home on the CW’s high anticipated fall series, The Flash, and now another former Tomorrow People star has also moved on – even if fans have not. Luke Mitchell, who played John Young on the short-lived CW supernatural drama, has just been cast in ABC’s mid-season drama series, Members Only.
The new show, formerly titled The Club, will center around a private country club. Mitchell will play Jesse, a character from the wrong side of the tracks who was recently employed at the club and although he’ll appears to be a little rough around the edges, he actually has his life together.
Along with Mitchell, Members Only stars Betsy Brandt (Breaking Bad), Boris Kodjoe (Undercovers), Callie Hernandez (From Dusk Till Dawn), Chris Conroy, and newly cast Jaime Lee Kirchner (Mercy). Kirchner will play the wife of Kodjoe’s character, Deacon, who has finally gotten the stable life she always wanted. However, she crosses into unfamiliar territory where the club is involved.
Members Only received a 12-episode season order from ABC earlier this year. Susannah Grant, who wrote the screenplay for Julia Robert’s Erin Brockovich, has been brought on board to pen the script for the pilot, which is being produced by CBS Television Studios and ABC Studios. Grant will also be an executive producer on the project, along with Elementary producers Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly.
Before landing the role on The Tomorrow People, Mitchell starred on the Australian soap opera Home and Away from 2009 to 2013. He also starred alongside fellow CW actress Phoebe Tonkin (The Originals) in H2O: Just Add Water, which aired on Nickelodeon.
Members Only is set to debut on ABC somewhere around mid-season, with no official premiere date scheduled at this time.
