Allison Scagliotti (Drake & Josh) has been cast in Warehouse 13, the upcoming SCI FI original one-hour dramedy adventure series, the channel announced.

She joins previously announced cast members Eddie McClintock, Joanne Kelly, Saul Rubinek and CCH Pounder. Warehouse 13 will premiere July 7 with a two-hour pilot, starting at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Scagliotti will portray Claudia Donovan, a young, hip, brilliant techno whiz who manages to successfully breach the Warehouse's complex security system in order to track down Artie (Rubinek). Donovan's natural aptitude for science and technology enables her to manipulate and activate many of the objects contained in the Warehouse to help the team.

Warehouse 13 is about two Secret Service agents who find themselves abruptly transferred to a massive, top-secret storage facility in windswept South Dakota that houses every strange artifact, mysterious relic, fantastical object and supernatural souvenir ever collected by the U.S. government.

The series is executive-produced by Jack Kenny, who also serves as show runner. David Simkins (Dresden Files) is executive producer; Jace Alexander (Burn Notice) is co-executive producer and director of the pilot; and Stephen Surjik (Monk) is producer/director of the series.
