Reef Break - Desmond Chiam to Star in ABC Summer Series



Desmond Chiam (The Shannara Chronicles, Now Apocalypse) has been cast to star as one of the male leads in ABC's Reef Break, an upcoming summer crime drama series per Deadline. Chiam was cast after an international search to co-star opposite Poppy Montgomery in the series produced by ABC Studios and ABC Studios International in partnership with France's M6.

Montgomery will executive produce the series, which is based on her idea, along with Ken Sanzel, who will write the series as well as serve as showrunner.

“Reef Break” is a sexy, action-packed, one-hour drama starring Poppy Montgomery as Cat Chambers, a thief-turned-fixer for the governor of a stunning and seductive Pacific Island paradise. Impulsive, reckless and irresistible, Cat’s less-than-perfect past gives her an instinctive gift for understanding crime and criminals as she becomes enmeshed in fast-paced, high octane adventures and island intrigue.

Cat’s reappearance also makes waves for old friends, enemies and lovers, including an FBI agent ex-husband, her imprisoned crime boss and a police detective lover who is in over his head. Each episode will be a character-driven cocktail of crime, surf, sex and sunshine, and for Cat, the lines between work and play have never been blurrier.


Desmond will play Jake Wyatt, a detective on the island who knows his way around a life or death scenario. After a one-night-stand as strangers, Wyatt and Cat (Montgomery) are suddenly working on a case together – a scenario he's not quite prepared to handle.
