Eric Winter

A little over two weeks ago we reported here that actress Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica) had landed the lead role in a new TNT drama pilot called SCENT OF THE MISSING.

Now news has broken that actor Eric Winter, best known for his work on Brothers & Sisters and The Mentalist, will co-star with Helfer in the potential series that is based on the book by Susannah Charleson.

The project centers on Susannah (Helfer), a tenacious, strong-willed K-9 Search and Rescue volunteer who works with an equally determined partner — her mischievous golden retriever, Puzzle.

Winter will play Jake, a member of the search and rescue team with his dog Shadow.

Among his other credits are episodes of the short-lived series Moonlight, the ABC Family Channel series Wildfire and a long-running stint on Days of Our Lives. He has also appeared in the box office film The Ugly Truth.

Scent of the Missing has yet to be picked up by TNT and is currently only a pilot.
