Tessa Munro (S.W.A.T., Scandal) has boarded the Alex Noyer-directed feature Conductor. She will join previously announced cast member Jasmin Savoy Brown, who will play Alexis, a formerly deaf woman who recovered her hearing and gained synesthetic abilities after witnessing the brutal murder of her family when she was a child. Finding solace in the sounds of bodily harm, she pursues a career in music, composing her masterpiece through gruesome murders. She is supported by her loving roommate Marie (Lili Simmons), who is blissfully unaware of the part she plays in Alexis’ work. Faced with the possibility of losing her hearing again, Alexis relentlessly pursues her masterpiece through gruesome sound experiments on human flesh.
Munro will play Sonya Fuentes, the lead detective hot on the case, chasing after Alexis.
Noyer will also serve as producer while Hannu Aukia and Mike Macari (Netflix’s Fractured, The Ring) will executive produce.
Munro is repped by Momentum Talent and Stellar Artists Management.
