Rick Cosnett & Danielle Panabaker Recruited For CW Pilot 'The Flash'
Reported by Outsiders - 2014.01.25
The pilot for the CW's Flash is starting to pick up speed by recruiting Rick Cosnett and Danielle Panabaker to co-star opposite Grant Gustin and Jesse L. Martin. Cosnett plays star Detective Eddie Thawne, a recent transfer to the Central City Police Department, whose past is a mystery and who harbors a dark secret. Panabaker plays Caitlin Snow, a highly intelligent bioengineering expert who lost her fiancÚ during an explosion at S.T.A.R. Labs.
The project, from Warner Bros TV and Berlanti Productions, is an origin story about Barry Allen aka The Flash (Gustin), a Central City assistant police forensics investigator who arrives in Starling to look into a series of unexplained robberies that may have a connection to a tragedy in his past. Flash will now film a regular pilot directed by David Nutter, a move clearly geared toward a series pickup.
