Welcome to Magnificent Marsha, the newest resource for actress Marsha Thomason. Known for her roles on Las Vegas, Lost, Playing the Field and Where the Heart is she currently stars on White Collar as Diana Barrigan. Keep checking in for the newest images, news and information about Marsha and her career.
Christopher Eccleston (The Leftovers) Marsha Thomason (White Collar) and Paterson Joseph (Law & Order: UK) have been set as the leads in ITV’s four part thriller series Safe House, TVWise has learned.
Safe House is set in the lake district and tells the story of a married couple, Robert and Katy, who are asked by close friend and police officer Mark to turn their remote guest house into a safe house. Their first ‘guests’ at the Safe House, are a family in fear of their lives after they are violently attacked by someone who claims to know them.
Christopher Eccleston will play Robert, a former detective who finds that his time at the ‘safe house’ makes him question an incident from 18 months ago when a star witness he was protecting was killed; Marhsa Thomason has been cast as Katy, Roberts wife; and Paterson Joseph as Mark. Jason Merrells (Emmerdale), Nicola Stephenson (All At Sea), and Peter Ferdinando (Doctor Who) also star.
The four-parter, which is envisioned as a “potential returnable series”, is the first scripted project to be originated and developed by Eleventh Hour Films and was created by Michael Crompton. Marc Evans is directing Safe House, which just entered production for a 2015 premiere. The executive producers are Paula Cuddy and Jill Green.
Speaking at the time the series was commissioned, ITV’s Director of Drama Steve November and ITV’s Controller of Drama Victoria Fea said: “We’re delighted to commission Safe House from Jill Green and Eleventh Hour Films. It’s a compelling four-part drama from Michael Crompton with great characters and genuine twists which keep you guessing right to the end.”
One of USA Network‘s signature series, drama White Collar, is poised to wrap its run with a six-episode sixth and final season. There is no official word yet, but I hear the network and series producer Fox TV Studios are finalizing the deal. The size of the order looks like a compromise between a movie/mini-series conclusion USA had been considering and a full-length season, sought by producer FfvS. Season 5 ended with a cliffhanger involving the abduction of Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer). All of USA’s other established series — Monk, Burn Notice (also produced by FtvS), Psych and In Plain Sight — also had received a proper send-off. Moved to fall for the first time since its first season, White Collar got dinged up against in-season competition but rebounded in January when the conclusion of Season 5 averaged 2.8 million viewers in Live+Same Day, up 22% from fall, and 955,000 adults 18-49, up 32%.
Working on some updates in the Magnificent Marsha Thomason Gallery and the rest of the White Collar Screencaps are added.
