Penned by Castle vet Will Beall and picking up 15 years after the Denzel Washington/Ethan Hawke movie, the drama pilot centers on an idealistic young African-American police officer who is appointed to the LAPD’s elite Special Investigation Section (S.I.S.), where he is partnered with a seasoned, morally ambiguous detective (to be played by Big Love‘s Bill Paxton).
Per our sister site Deadline, Law will play Rebecca Lee, an S.I.S. detective who at age 4 was rescued from human traffickers by Paxton’s character.
Law’s previous TV credits also include Spartacus: War of the Damned, The Resistance and Legend of the Seeker.
