Armin Shimerman, Star Trek Deep Space Nine’s lovable rogue Ferengi bartender Quark, has been cast in Zimm, a new sci-fi web series dealing with an alien invasion. More details and a teaser trailer for the show below.
Shimerman back with aliens
According to the official description, Zimm is "an original sci-fi, action-thriller" which will be like "24 with aliens and a Die Hard attitude." The show was created by Gregory Storm (writer for Girlfriends & Night Stalker) and focuses on FBI agent Bailey Zimm (Robyn Hyden) dealing with an alien invasion. Shimerman will play the boss, Special Agent in Charge Ryan Sutherland. The cast also includes Alimi Ballard (Numb3rs), Zadi Diaz (Epic Fu), and Michele Boyd (FlashForward).
No word yet on when the show will begin airing, but you can learn more about it at zimmtheseries.com.
