Carlton Cuse, Mark Pellegrino Get 'Lost' With 'The Returned'

Carlton Cuse is returning to the island of Lost, at least as far as casting goes.

The executive producer best known for Lost, Bates Motel and The Strain, is behind A&E's upcoming series The Returned, an adaptation of the French supernatural drama of the same name. The series takes place in a small town where several locals, previously presumed dead, suddenly return, with varying consequences.

Cuse has tapped a Lost veteran for one of the lead roles: Mark Pellegrino, who played the enigmatic island's equally mysterious protector, Jacob. He'll play Jack (another Lost parallel), described by Deadline as the rugged "father of twin girls, the 20-year-old Lena, and Camille, who died in a school bus crash four years ago at the age of 16 and is now coming back."
