NEW YORK, March 22 (UPI) -- James Paxton and Gil Bellows are to join Julianne Nicholson and Tyler Young in Eyewitness, the U.S. adaptation of the Norwegian television drama Øyevitne, USA Network announced Tuesday.
Tattiawna Jones and Matt Murray will also appear as recurring guest stars on the series.
"Paxton will co-lead as Lukas Hallenbeck, a young teenaged boy who seems to have it all -- popularity, motocross stardom, and the hottest girl in school. But beneath the surface, he's deeply conflicted about his sexuality. When he meets Philip [played by Young] -- a classmate who's more comfortable in his skin – Lukas starts a journey towards self-acceptance that is interrupted when the boys witness a quadruple murder. His sanity begins to slip as he's hunted by the killer and haunted by the fear of being outed as gay and losing everything he has," a press release said.
"Bellows has been cast as Gabe, a small-town veterinarian whose decency, integrity and compassion rescued Helen [played by Nicholson] from her self-destructive cycle of living. But the pressures of fostering Philip amidst Helen's shocking homicide case threaten to tear the marriage apart."
