The Holmes sisters have been assembled for ABC’s potential drama series from Regina King and Robin Roberts.
Leigh-Ann Rose has landed the role of the fifth and final sister in the untitled pilot, which was recently reported to be titled, The Finest, but now seems to be untitled once again.
The drama centers on the “lives of five African-American sisters, all officers in the NYPD, as they face the challenges of their high-risk jobs while juggling the responsibilities of marriage, motherhood and family.” It is based on the real-life story of the Holmes sisters, who Roberts covered for GMA.
Rose joins Frances Turner, Amirah Vann, Tisha Campbell- Martin and Aubin Wise as the other sisters, and other series regulars Michael Beach, Dorian Missick, Zoë Robins, Eric Balfour and Gerard Celasco.
She’ll play Nicole Kendrick, “an attractive, fit, strong-willed, tough NYPD Detective.”
Rose was a series regular on Tyler Perry’s Love Thy Neighbor and was also in a recurring role on Younger.
