But there's a twist: Tal will be playing an actress named Kelly Collins who is in turn portraying a young LAPD detective on a wildly popular television show called Cult. It's suspected that fans of the series are re-creating crimes on the program in real life.

Former Melrose Place reboot star Jessica Lucas was previously announced to play, Skye, a young production assistant on the show who joins a journalist blogger investigating the fans.
