Actor Steven Pasquale has been announced as the latest addition to the ABC series Avalon. Pasquale will join previously announced Neve Campell in the upcoming ABC drama series that follows the sheriff of a small town that must keep up with the tourism business of her hometown and a new, horrifying discovery.
Originally based on a short story by show co-creator Michael Connelly, Avalon on ABC will feature Neve Campbell (Scream) as Los Angeles Sheriff Department Detective Nicole “Nic” Searcy, living and serving the local population of the city of Avalon on Catalina Island. The city of Avalon reportedly serves more than a million tourists a year, and with the arrival of each new tourist, Nicole’s job gets more and more complicated – Avalon will follow Nicole as she uncovers a “career-defining mystery” that “will challenge everything she knows about herself and the island.”
Steven Pasquale will join Avalon as LA County Sheriff detective William Claypool, described by Deadline as “intelligent, headstrong and good-humored”. Claypool is called to Catalina Island to join Nicole to discover a new and terrifying secret that’s been uncovered on the island.
