Priestly to star in FX drama

Variety says Jason Priestly has signed to star in FX’s drug drama pilot Dope, set to begin production this month. This will be Priestly’s first series commitment since he left Beverly Hills, 90210 over two years ago. The show will also star Jacqueline Obradors, Keith David and Grayson McCouch. FX plans to air the series alongside The Barn, a new police drama with Michael Chiklis, CCH Pounder, Jay Karnes, Michael Jace, Catherine Dent and Benito Martinez.
