NBC is developing a drama series centered around a newly-elected black female mayor in Baltimore, Maryland.
The series is executive produced by Penny Johnson Jerald and Allison Abner.
According to Variety, who exclusively reported the news, “the series will be set in Baltimore and follows a newly elected African-American female mayor, her female chief of police, and district attorney as they work for the good of one of America’s most dangerous cities.”
Johnson Jerald, a veteran actress, is known for roles like Sherry Palmer on 24, Kasidy Yates on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and Victoria “Iron” Gates on Castle. She’s also starring in FOX’s upcoming series, The Orville.
