David Giuntoli and Poppy Montgomery fly over to CBS Pilot “Mission Control”

With Grimm wrapping its six-season run on NBC, series star David Giuntoli has been tapped as the male lead in CBS’ drama pilot Mission Control. Without a Trace and Unforgettable star Poppy Montgomery is returning to CBS as the female lead in the project, from The Martian author Andy Weir and The Martian producer Simon Kinberg, which has tapped Brian Buckner as showrunner.

Written by Weir and directed by Jeremy Podeswa, Mission Control revolves around the next generation of NASA astronauts and scientists who juggle their personal and professional lives during a critical mission with no margin for error.

Montgomery will play Julie, flight director for the Durga Mission. Giuntoli plays Stevenson, an astronaut and the Durga Mission’s commander. The character was originally written African American. They join previously cast Nestor Serrano and Levi Fiehler.

Weir, Kinberg and Buckner executive produce alongside Courtney Conte & Quan Phung of Slingsho, Aditya Sood and Charles Eglee.

Montgomery is coming off a four-season run as the lead of Unforgettable — three on CBS and one on A&E. She is repped by ICM Partners, Framework Entertainment and Schreck Rose. Giuntoli, whose feature credits include 13 Hours, is repped by WME and Berwick & Kovacik.

Are you happy about this potential series news for David Giuntoli, or were you disappointed because of the decreasing possibility of another season of Grimm?
