Apollo Jamie Bamber has been coaxed back across the pond by his former Battlestar Galactica boss.
The aesthetically blessed Brit — who returned to his native London after BSG ended to headline Law & Order: UK — has landed a lead role in Ron Moore’s NBC pilot 17th Precinct.
The project, an ensemble cop drama with a sci-fi spin, is set in a fictional town where magic and supernatural elements rule over science.
Bamber will play Caolan, an extremely focused crime scene detective. He joins the recently cast Stockard Channing.
