Matt Lanter To Save ‘Time’ For NBC

According to Deadline, Matt Lanter (“Star Wars: The Clone Wars”) has been cast as one of the leads in “Time“, a potential NBC series hailing from the creative minds of Eric Kripke (“Supernatural”) and Shawn Ryan (“The Shield“).  Still in the pilot phase, the science fiction adventure series is gearing up for production in the hopes of a greelight for the fall TV season.  Lanter will be playing one of the series’ three heroes.  Abigail Spencer was cast not long ago as the female lead.
