Dexter Alum Jennifer Carpenter to Star in Upcoming ABC Drama Pilot Sea of Fire
Although some Dexter fans are still mourning the loss of Deb Morgan, we'll get to see 34-year-old Jennifer Carpenter on our small screens again with the help of a new ABC pilot, Sea of Fire.
Like Dexter, Sea of Fire sounds just bonkers dark and bloody. The series, or at least the pilot, follows three teenage girls who star in a pornographic film. Their small-town families are, of course, pretty unhappy. Amid family drama, someone disappears and another turns up murdered. Jennifer will play FBI agent Leah Pierce, who's charged with getting to the bottom of the mess, and maybe unearthing some scandalous secrets in the process.
That isn't all Jennifer has been up to since Dexter; she's the voice of Black Widow in the Marvel Avengers Confidential: Black Widow and Punisher animated film, and stars in the horror thriller film Where the Devil Hides, slated to be released later this year. In a departure from her other work, she also lends voice talents to the Pound Puppies cartoon.
