Sofia Pernas (ex-Marisa, The Young and the Restless) lit up CBS Daytime opposite Robert Adamson (ex-Noah, Y&R). Since leaving the sudser, she's booked multiple primetime gigs; in fact, her summer Indiana Jones-style smash, Blood and Treasure, has just begun filming season 2.
Pernas stars as Lexi, a master thief, who tries to track down Cleopatra's sarcophagus with her ex, former FBI agent Danny (Matt Barr). Combining alternate history reminiscent of The Da Vinci Code with wry wit, Blood and Treasure was renewed in July for another season by CBS.
CBS's Amy Reisenbach told The Hollywood Reporter:
"Blood & Treasure is a fun, escapist adventure with comedic elements filmed in multiple locales around the world that has been a great performer and a wonderful addition to our summer schedule. We've heard the story pitch for season two and look forward to seeing all-new exploits from Russia to Southeast Asia next year."
Teen drama fans might recognize Barr from One Tree Hill, where he played Peyton (Hilari Burton)'s creepy stalker, while villainous Farouk (Oded Fehr) popped up on soap fave Charmed.
