Sarah Wayne Callies and Milo Ventimiglia are sibling up: The Walking Dead alumna has joined the ABC drama pilot The Company You Keep, starring This Is Us vet Ventimiglia and Catherine Haena Kim (Good Trouble), our sister site Deadline reports.
In the potential series — based on the Korean format My Fellow Citizens — “a night of passion leads to love between con-man Charlie (Ventimiglia) and undercover CIA officer Emma (Kim), who are unknowingly on a collision course professionally,” per the official synopsis. “While Charlie ramps up the ‘family business’ so he can get out for good, Emma’s closing in on the vengeful criminal who holds Charlie’s family debts in-hand, forcing them to reckon with the lies they’ve told so they can save themselves and their families from disastrous consequences.”
Callies will play Charlie’s big sister Birdie, who is also the co-owner of the bar they run together, which serves as a front for their illegitimate family business.
