Dani Kind (Mercedes Gardner) will be Lucille in TWO DEATHS OF HENRY BAKER, a modern-day western that stars Gil Bellows as Henry Baker, a famous outlaw who is released from prison after 25 years. Old friends and old ememies, including a bearded vagrant with an old bullet scar, a drunken deputy with half an ear missing, and a burned out street hustler with a vendetta, trail Henry to the Belair Bar and Hotel in (fictional) Grey County somewhere in the US. Once there, Baker plans to reunite with his son who has been protecting the gold he stashed away before being jailed. Among others in the cast are Jess Salgueiro (Jackie in I’LL TAKE YOUR DEAD) and Tony Curran (Datak Tarr on DEFIANCE).
Lauren Holly (Sadie in “Midnight Lamp“) will be Monique, director of the Archer School of Ballet, in TINY PRETTY THINGS, an hour-long drama series based on the 2015 novel by Sona Charaipotra and Dhonielle Clayton.

In the book, Bette, June, and Gigi are the three top students at the school. In the series, sisters Bette and Delia Whitlaw (Casimere Jollette and Tory Trowbridge) seem to be featured characters, along with their boyfriends Oren (Barton Cowperthwaite) and Ramon (Bayardo De Murguia).
