Summer Glau also has an upcoming role alongside Tricia Helfer in the TNT pilot/TV movie titled Scent of the Missing.

It’s produced by CBS Television. It’s been referenced as a drama pilot for TNT. It centers on Susannah (Helfer), a stubborn K-9 Search and Rescue volunteer who works with an equally stubborn partner her golden retriever.

Glau will play a new member on the search team. This project is based on a book by Susannah Charleson.

Great points Chris. Thanks for chiming in, and yes, I hope she starts landing roles in shows that last.

I find it interesting that showrunners like Shonda Rhimes, Joss Whedon, Josh Friedman (TSCC) or Alphas showrunner want Summer Glau in their show; I think it’s safe to say that they appreciate her work.
Also Summer won’t guest star in GA to lure geeks to watch the show because it doesn’t need it and the audience is not the same anyway; it means she’s there for her acting skills.
This guest appearance will bring more exposure to Summer Glau and is a good way to showcase her talent.

I hope Scent of the Missing will be the start of a new successful decade for Summer Glau.
