Casting sources tell us … the 2 networks hit the hardest by Trump’s order are NBC and Netflix. “For God and Country” — produced by the “Homeland” folks — have a pilot order from NBC which calls for a number of Middle Eastern actors.

Marc Cherry has an untitled pilot for ABC as well that’s set to star a late 20’s Middle Eastern man … alongside Reba McEntire.
