Onetime Under the Dome/CSI: NY/Detroit 1-8-7 law enforcer Natalie Martinez will again wield a shield, as the female lead on the Fox pilot A.P.B.
Inspired by the New York Times Magazine article “Who Runs the Streets of New Orleans?” and penned by Person of Interest‘s David Slack, the drama project follows a tech billionaire who purchases a troubled police precinct in the wake of a loved one’s murder, asking the question: Can this eccentric and enigmatic figure’s cutting-edge approach fix the broken ways of these blue-blooded veterans?
Per our sister site Deadline, Martinez will play Amelia Murphy, a wry, confident police detective whose penchant for questioning authority has led to her being stuck in the dysfunctional 13th Precinct.
Sleepy Hollow creator Len Wiseman is among the pilot’s executive producers.
Martinez’s previous TV credits also include Secrets and Lies Season 1 and Kingdom.
