Stargate Atlantis actor Joe Flanigan has been cast in The Secret Lives of Wives, a pilot for a new series on Lifetime.
Inspired by a book by Iris Krasnow, the series follows four women and “the unvarnished truth” behind their marriages, according to Deadline. The pilot is currently filming in Austin, Texas.
Flanigan will play Jared, husband of Salli Richardson‘s character, Reed. Richardson played Allison Blake on Syfy’s Eureka, and previously guest starred on Stargate SG-1 as Teal’c’s wife, Drey’auc (before the character was recast in Season Two).
Jared is described as “unshaven and a shadow of his former self, who has become passive and unresponsive to his marriage.”
Also on the show is Callum Blue, who went from MGM’s Dead Like Me to play Zod on Smallville. He also guest starred in the “Kali” 3-parter on Sanctuary.
Kim Raver, Amber Clayton, Lauren Bittner, David Conrad, and Derek Smith round out the cast.
