Fox's modern Exorcist pilot has found its female lead: Geena Davis! She'll play a "naturally beautiful, regal, and proud" woman named Angela Rance, who is "weighed down by stress, [but] does everything she can to stay positive and keep her faith even though her family is currently struggling." What are they struggling with? Oh, nothing much. In the nonchalant words of the network's announcement: "She can't help but think, however, if perhaps her nightmares about a demon are a sign of what's wrong." No, those dreams about a demon are probably not a sign of anything bad. Everything's going great. Try the pea soup.
