*“Necessary Roughness” co-star Mehcad Brooks has signed on for the CW pilot “Identity,” reports Deadline.

The story follows Mia (Ahna O’Reilly), a young New Yorker who learns she needs an organ transplant to survive and her only living relative is a newfound half-brother, Davis (Matt Barr), the only son of a wealthy and powerful Charleston family. She connects with them only to find they’re the target of a CIA investigation for involvement in domestic terrorism, and the agency wants her as their newest informant.

Brooks plays Brennan, a driven, unorthodox CIA agent who finds himself with a perfectly positioned but very green new asset in Mia.
