Jessica Lucas has landed the lead role in The CW's pilot Cult.

The drama, which is being executive produced by Gossip Girl's Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, focuses on a television show which becomes controversial when fans seem to begin copying crimes featured in the series.

Lucas has now signed up to play a production assistant working on the show, Deadline reports.

Her character teams up with a blogger to investigate the fans who are apparently taking their devotion to the show too far.

Lucas's previous television credits include Life As We Know It, Edgemont, CSI, 90210, Melrose Place and Friends With Benefits.

She has also appeared on the big screen in movies such as Cloverfield and Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son.

Other pilots currently in the works at The CW include a project from JJ Abrams and One Tree Hill's executive producer Mark Schwahn, time-travel show Joey Dakota, medical drama First Cut and Sex and the City prequel The Carrie Diaries.

Elsewhere, Stephen Amell recently signed up for the lead role in The CW's superhero pilot Arrow.
