Wood Harris has been cast in the upcoming ABC drama pilot, The Mission.
The Mission "chronicles the colorful, complicated lives of cops on and off the beat as we follow them into harrowing, emotional and often humorous situations. It centers on Oriana “Ori” Cloverfield (Lynn Collins), who gave up a legal career to become a rookie cop — or so it seems. Harris plays Sgt. Frank Griffith aka Griff, Ori’s training officer, a veteran cop whose lackluster enthusiasm for the job rankles her."
Aside from Collins and Harris, the potential series stars Aasif Mandvi, Kris Lofton, Josh Randall, Vannessa Vasquez and Alexander Karim.
Harris most known for his film roles in Paid in Full and Remember the Titans, recently was on TV for VH1's The Breaks and BET's miniseries, The New Edition Story.
