Kiwi actor Martin Henderson has nabbed one of the lead roles in a new US drama pilot.
The former Shortland Street actor has joined Secret Lives of Husbands and Wives, an NBC project described as “thriller-dramatic soap”.
The project centres on a murder and the secrets and lives of a group of three suburban couples and their families who are exposed in its aftermath.
Henderson will play a character called Kyle Dunn, a former astronaut who returns home after a long absence to find everything is not as it seems.
He will be joined in the pilot by Perrey Reeves (Entourage) and Nicole Ari Parker (Blue Streak, Remember the Titans), who are the only other cast members announced at this stage.
