David Boreanaz‘s new role is less Seeley Booth, more Lenny Bruce.
The Bones actor will star in DirecTV’s upcoming series Full Circle alongside Kate Walsh (Private Practice), Julian McMahon (Nip/Tuck), Billy Campbell (The Killing) and a slew of other familiar TV faces.
The 10-episode relationship drama from Neil LaBute (The Shape of Things, In the Company of Men), who’s making his television debut, follows 11 people whose lives are unknowingly intertwined. Each episode features a restaurant-set conversation between two characters, one of whose storylines will continue in the next outing during a discussion with a new character and so on.
McMahon will play a charismatic and intense entertainment attorney who represents Boreanaz’ outlandish comic. When the latter takes a joke too far, a young girl’s life (90210‘s Keke Palmer) is irrecoverably altered. Walsh and Campbell co-star as Trisha and Trent, the parents of a classmate (Lost‘s Devon Gearhart) who has a secret crush on Palmer’s character.
The cast also includes Cheyenne Jackson (30 Rock), whose aspiring singer intrudes on Trisha and Trent’s special night, Noah Silver (The Borgias) as Trisha’s student and Ally Sheedy (Psych) as his mother, Tom Felton (Harry Potter) as an exchange student from England and Minka Kelly (Friday Night Lights) as his love interest. The final episode of the season, which brings all the characters together, will introduce Robin Weigert (Sons of Anarchy).
Full Circle is slated to premiere on DirecTV’s Audience network this fall.
