I did this for the Sleepy Hollow Wiki too and brought to their attention the awesome Japanese dub of the series.
For Wayward Pines Wiki, here's snippets of information about the Wayward Pines official Japanese dub release:
Official Japanese Websites
Second link is the entire first episode subtitled in Japanese. You will get the Japanese dub if you buy the DVDs, of course. ^^;
I knew it! The opening theme was slightly different from the beginning than the current one.

Wayward Pines: The Inescapable Town
(ウェイワード・パインズ 出口のない街 Ueiwādo Painzu Dekichi no Nai Machi)
Yes, the Japanese title is longer. Just like that of Gravity Falls (known as Kaiketsu Zone Gravity Falls in Japan). ^^
Main Japanese Voice Cast
- Ethan Burke (イーサン・バーク Īsan Bāku) - Kenjiro Tsuda
- Arnold Pope (アーノルド・ポープ Ānorudo Pōpu) - Kentaro Itou
- Pam (パム Pamu) - Sayuri Sadaoka
I have known Kenjiro Tsuda and Kentaro Itou to perform voice roles exceptionally. I can't say I've heard Sayuri Sadaoka already though.
Episode Name Comparison
The Japanese episode names differ from the US titles. Japanese episode names tend to be more direct to the point with the focus of the episode rather than to be an allusion to a gist of the story.
