Lights Out (FX TV Drama)


Hardin, Koteas and Conway join FX's Lights Out.

Melora Hardin has been cast as the female lead opposite Holt McCallany on FX’s drama pilot Lights Out. Elias Koteas and Kevin Conway also have been cast as leads on the pilot from Fox TV Studios and FX Productions. Hardin will play Leary’s wife, while Conway will play Lights’ father and former trainer, a widower who still runs a gym. Koteas will play Lights’ boyhood friend who is his manager/business partner.

Lights Out centers on Patrick “Lights Out” Leary, an aging former heavyweight boxing champion who struggles to find his identity and support his wife, a pediatric orthopedic surgeon, and three daughters after his fighting days are over. That leads him to take a job as a legbreaker, collecting on unpaid gambling debts. He is diagnosed with pugilistic dementia, so he decides he’ll need to make one more big payday to support himself and his family.

Clark Johnson is directing the pilot, which is slated to begin April 15 in New Jersey. Justin Zackham wrote the script and is executive producing with Phillip Noyce and Ross Fineman.

On The Office, Hardin has played Jan Levinson, Michael Scott’s former boss and ex-girlfriend. She was last seen in the October 16 Baby Shower episode in which she brought her newborn baby to the Dunder Mifflin office, creating tension between her, Michael and his new love Holly. Hardin won’t appear on the show’s remaining episodes this season, on which she is still formally a regular. She is expected to guest star in one or more episodes next season.
