South of HellProduction has begun in Charleston SC on WE tv’s next scripted series, the supernatural thriller, “South of Hell.” Actress Mena Suvari (“Chicago Fire,” “Hysteria”) has been cast in the lead role as Maria Abascal, a reluctant exorcist for hire with her very own demon living inside of her, named Abigail.

The series also stars Zachary Booth (“Keep the Lights On”), Bill Irwin (“CSI”), Drew Moerlein (“V/H/S”), Lamman Rucker (“Meet the Browns”), and Paulina Singer (“How to Make It In America”), with recurring cast members Lydia Hearst (“Cabin Fever: Patient Zero”), Slate Holmgren (“The Amazing Spider-Man 2”) and Lauren Velez (“Dexter”).

Charleston, South Carolina is the most possessed city in the world. Evil thrives there. Something with which 30-year-old exorcist Maria Abascal is intimately acquainted. She wrestles demons for a living. Especially Abigail, the one that lives within her. The one who feeds on damned souls and who’s violated the laws of hell to live on earth—and live on, inside Maria. Now, as they work as one, Maria will discover how personal her battle with evil has become and how far Abigail will go to protect them both. It’s a journey where the unspeakable is just a heartbeat away.

Zachary Booth will play the character of David Abascal, Maria’s brother and closest companion who has a few of his own real-world demons: an addiction to heroin and a lust for troublesome women. Bill Irwin joins the cast as Enos Abascal, Maria and David’s once cunning and superbly manipulative father and the leader of a notorious devil worship cult known as the Order of Everlasting. Drew Moerlein plays Dusty, Maria’s handsome, ex-military neighbor and the local handyman. Lamman Rucker stars as Reverend Elijah Bledsoe, a priest with a strong attraction to and interest in Maria, and father to Grace, played by Paulina Singer, his bi-racial daughter who has experienced extraordinary emotional trauma.
