Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Cold Case alum Danny Pino is set as a lead opposite Chris Noth and Leven Rambin in Gone, a 12-episode procedural drama series for NBCUniversal International Studios, Germany’s RTL and France’s TF1. The series, which eyes a launch in winter 2017-18, was created by Matt Lopez (The Sorcerer’s Apprentice) based on Chelsea Cain’s novel One Kick.

Gone tells the fictional story of Kit “Kick” Lannigan (Rambin), survivor of a famous child-abduction case, and Frank Booth (Noth), the FBI agent who rescued her. Determined never to fall victim again, Kick trains in martial arts and the use of firearms. She finds her calling when Booth persuades her to join a special task force he created dedicated to solving abductions and missing persons cases. Paired with former Army intelligence officer John Bishop (Pino), Kick brings her unique understanding of the mind of a predator. Bishop is initially skeptical about bringing Kick onto the team, but over the course of the season, he will come to appreciate her unique skill-set and they will become a formidable crime-solving duo.

Gone is executive produced by Lopez, NBCU International Studios’ EVP Scripted Programming JoAnn Alfano, former Dexter executive producer Sara Colleton, along with Kim Moses and Barry O’Brien.

Pino most recently starred opposite Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Tony Shalhoub in CBS’ critically praised series Braindead. He previously played Detective Nick Amaro on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit for multiple seasons, and starred for seven seasons as Detective Scotty Valens on Cold Case. He also recurred on ABC’s Scandal. Pino is repped by ICM Partners and GEF Entertainment.

Danny Pino is joining “Scandal” in a recurring role, Variety has learned exclusively.

The “Law & Order: SVU” and “Cold Case” alum will appear in an arc during the current fifth season. Per Shondaland’s typical spoiler lockdown strategy, there’s no word on Pino’s character description nor how many episodes he will appear in or when they will all air. However, since he will be recurring, he’ll be playing a role that’s more than case-of-the-week territory.

‘Scandal’: Darby Stanchfield Teases Abby’s ‘Major Change’ in the White House

While ABC has not made any character details available upon Variety‘s request, just for fun, one point of speculation falls under the umbrella of potential love interest for Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington), as her relationship with Jake (Scott Foley) is quite complicated and she has split from the president (Tony Goldwyn), who’s enjoying a new flame in the series’ recent storyline — if Fitz has a new lady, it only seems fair Ms. Pope should enjoy some new romance, too. (But, for the record, Pino could be portraying any sort of character, love interest or not.)

Pino starred on “SVU” from 2011 until departing in 2015. Prior to that, he starred on “Cold Case” on CBS, and he’ll return to the network this summer, as a series regular on “BrainDead,” from “The Good Wife” creators Robert and Michelle King.

As for other new additions to “Scandal,” Joe Morton, aka Papa Pope, was upped to a series regular this season.

Cold Case alum Danny Pino is returning to CBS with a starring role opposite Mary Elizabeth Winstead in BrainDead, CBS’ upcoming summer series from The Good Wife creators Robert and Michelle King. The comic thriller, from CBS TV Studios, centers on Laurel (Winstead), a young, fresh-faced Hill staffer whose first job in Washington, D.C., leads her to discover two things: The government has stopped working, and alien spawn have come to Earth and eaten the brains of a growing number of congressmen and Hill staffers. Pino will play Luke, Laurel’s older brother, the Democratic Whip Senator from Maryland.

This marks the third back-to-back series for Pino. Following a seven-season run as Detective Scotty Valens, the male lead of CBS’ crime procedural Cold Case, he segued to NBC’s Law & Order: SVU where he co-starred as Detective Nick Amaro for the past four seasons.

The Kings executive produce BrainDead with Ridley Scott, David Zucker, Brooke Kennedy and Liz Glotzer for CBS Television Studios, King Size Productions and Scott Free Productions. Aaron Tviet and Johnny Ray Gill co-star.

Pino is repped by ICM Partners and manager Geordie Frey of GEF Entertainment.

It’s a good day if your name is Dick Wolf.

NBC has renewed Law & Order: SVU for a 14th season while giving a green light to the new Wolf-produced drama Chicago Fire.

The SVU pickup was foreshadowed last month when leading lady Mariska Hargitay sealed a deal to return as Det. Benson.
