From Elizabeth Craft and Sarah Fain (Dollhouse, The Vampire Diaries), the Hunger Games-meets-The Bachelor project is set 300 years in the future and centers on a working class woman (played by Israeli actress Yael Grobglas) reluctantly chosen by lottery to participate in a competition for the hand of a prince (Michael Malarkey) and thus become the nation’s next queen.
Winter — who’ll next be seen in the Dr. Who origins telepic An Adventure in Space and Time — will play Ashley Brovillette, a naïve young woman thrilled to be among the Selection’s participants.
Buffy alum Anthony Head was cast earlier this week as king of the royal family.
