Tyler will star opposite Jennifer Aniston’s fiance, Justin Theroux (of “Six Feet Under,” and writer of “Iron Man 2” and “Tropic Thunder”), Christopher Eccleston (of “Heroes), and Carrie Coon (of “The Playboy Club”) in the pilot, which will be filmed this summer. Perrotta is working on the series with show runner Damon Lindelof, of “Lost” fame.
