Terry O’Quinn (Lost) joins Jesse L. Martin (Law & Order), Frances O’Connor (Cashmere Mafia), and Arielle Kebbel (The Vampire Diaries) in the cast of Hallelujah, a musical drama pilot set up by Marc Cherry (Desperate Housewives) at ABC. According to THR, Hallelujah is set in the town of Hallelujah, Tennessee, which is being “torn apart by the forces of good evil” before a mysterious stranger (Martin) comes to town. O’Quinn is clearly fictionally unable to escape the warring factions of good and evil, but Cherry’s take is sure to be land on the lighter side of deep philosophical questions.
For those keeping score during pilot season, NBC declined to film a pilot for Odd Jobs, the proposed re-teaming of O’Quinn and Lost co-star Michael Emerson. Emerson has a new show of his own in Person of Interest.
[Update: Donal Logue (Terriers) has joined the cast. More about Hallelujah after the jump.]
