Another actor has been added to the pilot of the ABC Family drama “Terminales,” which will be filmed around Boston in November. Abhi Sinha, who had a small role in “The Social Network” and appeared in the Elizabeth Banks movie “People Like Us,” joins a “Terminales” cast that already includes Italia Ricci and Mary Page Keller. Sinha will play a newpaper reporter in the program, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The script for the pilot sets much of the action at our very own Boston Globe, and local actors are already being cast as editors and writers (and, we hope, two very attractive Names columnists). “Terminales” is an adaptation of a Mexican drama about a young woman (played by Ricci) who is diagnosed with a terminal illness.

Writing partners Susanna Fogel and Joni Lefkowitz penned the pilot and are producing the series with Lionsgate TV and Televisa.
