The drama, from producer Jerry Bruckheimer, focuses on a group of amateur investigators who try to track down people who go missing. Slater would play the group's leader, a former cop whose young daughter was kidnapped.
ABC picked up the series at May's Upfronts, but the network later decided to find new actors for two roles — including the lead, which initially went to British actor Rupert Penry-Jones. The role of the group's female leader, originally played by Reiko Aylesworth, is also being recast.
