Whiskey Cavalier - Scott Foley to Star in FBI CIA Action Dramedy with Put Pilot Commitment at ABC

EXCLUSIVE: As Scandal is wrapping its seven-season run on ABC, the network has moved in to secure the next starring vehicle of cast member Scott Foley. In a competitive situation with multiple networks interested, ABC has landed Whiskey Cavalier, an hourlong action-dramedy project executive produced by Bill Lawrence, which has Foley attached to star and produce. The project, from writer Dave Hemingson, Warner Bros. TV and Lawrence’s studio-based Doozer Prods., has received a put pilot commitment from the network.

Written by Hemingson, Whiskey Cavalier follows the adventures of FBI agent Will Chase (codename: Whiskey Cavalier) — played by Foley — who, following an emotional break-up, is assigned to work with CIA operative Francesca “Frankie” Trowbridge (codename: Fiery Tribune). Together, they lead an inter-agency team of spies who periodically save the world (and each other) while navigating the rocky roads of friendship, romance and office politics.
