Feb. 18 (UPI) -- The Musketeers swashbuckler Santiago Cabrera has signed on to star in the new suspense drama Salvation, which is to premiere this summer on CBS.
The show follows "an MIT grad student and a tech superstar who bring a Pentagon official a staggering discovery -- that an asteroid is just six months away from colliding with Earth," a network press release explained.
Juan Carlos Fresnadillo is directing and serving as executive producer on the project, which will co-star Jennifer Finnigan, Charlie Rowe, Jacqueline Byers and Ian Anthony Dale.
Cabrera's character Darius is described as a "charming, self-made tech billionaire and visionary maverick, whose great love seems to be his projects. His greatest project of all, however, will be an audacious plan to save the human race from an incoming asteroid."
