Rutina Wesley Broad Squad

Rutina Wesley is trading in her fangs for a badge this pilot season.

The former True Blood star, who’s also set to recur in Hannibal‘s upcoming third season, has joined the cast of ABC’s Broad Squad, a 1978-set drama pilot about Boston’s first female patrol officers. Wesley will play Joanne, one of the four central female cops.

Previously announced cast members include Cody Horn (Rescue Me) and Charlotte Spencer, playing Lisa and Molly, two of Joanne’s fellow patrol officers.

Broad Squad hails from executive producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage (Gossip Girl), Len Goldstein (Astronaut Wives Club) and Aaron Kaplan (The Mysteries of Laura). Bess Wohl, who wrote the script, is also a co-executive producer.
