LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) – Annie Ilonzeh has found herself in the middle of a family feud.
Ilonzeh, who starred on ABC’s short-lived 2011 revamp of “Charlie’s Angels,” has been cast in NBC “Hatfields & McCoys” pilot.
Ilonzeh will play Shannon Hatfield, the adopted daughter of Rebecca De Mornay’s Mary Hatfield. Shannon develops a romantic interest in Patrick McCoy (played by “As the World Turns” star Jesse Lee Soffer) – which could prove to be problematic, as the two families have a history of not getting along so well together.
The pilot, which is produced by ABC Studios and executive produced by Charlize Theron, among others, recasts the legendary family feud in contemporary times, with the wealthy Hatfields facing off against the working-class McCoys.
The cast also includes Virginia Madsen, Nick Westrate and Patrick John Fleuger.
