Bassett will portray the supportive editor in chief at a Washington-based daily newspaper where one of her reporters has outed a CIA agent in a piece and been imprisoned for refusing to reveal her source.

Wyle plays the paper’s inhouse counsel placed in charge of defending the reporter. Kate Beckinsale, Matt Dillon, Alan Alda, Vera Farmiga, Harry Lennix and David Schwimmer also star.
