David Lyons Seven Seconds Netflix

David Lyons Joins Seven Seconds Netflix Drama From The Killing Creator

First, he played a Game of Silence; now he has Seven Seconds left.

David Lyons has signed on to star in the Netflix cop drama Seven Seconds, our sister site Deadline is reporting. Lyons will play Jersey City cop Mike Diangelo, who heads up the department’s narcotics squad; he’s joined by Beau Knapp (The Nice Guys), who co-stars as a newbie cop who signs up for Diangelo’s squad.

Seven Seconds, from The Killing creator Veena Sud and based on the Russian movie The Major, focuses on a standoff between Jersey City cops and the city’s African-American community after a black teen is critically injured by a police officer. The show’s first season is set for ten episodes; no premiere date has been set.

Besides Game of Silence, which was cancelled in May after just one season, Lyons has had starring roles in two other NBC dramas: Revolution, as General Sebastian “Bass” Monroe, and The Cape, as titular hero Vince Faraday. He also played CBS producer Josh Howard in last year’s Dan Rather docudrama Truth.

    Yay!

    Maybe non-NBC is the way to go for him.

    I really enjoyed The Killing but getting tired of the cop killing and civilians killing cops. I have great faith in Veena Sud so hopefully she will do it in a realistic and non riot inciting way as well as show both sides of the equation.

    It’s me, TVLine’s only David Lyons fan… back to ponder the realization that he’all be speaking with a Jersey accent this time around.
