Taye Diggs Joins ABC’s “Doomsday”
He’s booked! Taye Diggs has snagged a role in a new drama pilot called ‘Doomsday ‘. Check out his description role,
The Empire actor will play “Dr. Davis,” one of the former members of a U.S. government-instituted secret think tank — the Doomsday Project — comprised of the most creative minds in science and entertainment, tasked solely with dreaming up man-made disaster scenarios and their possible solutions. Handsome and confident, he is an engineer and architect, formerly the youngest-ever head of disaster prevention for FEMA. Fastidious, with expensive taste in clothes, he enjoys the finer things in life and is habitually well-dressed and not fond of forays into the field. The ideas invented by the Doomsday Project were so dangerous that the list was sealed and the program shut down. But when a catastrophe occurs ripped from the pages of the missing doomsday book, the team is brought back years later to prevent the disasters of their own making.
“Doomsday” is written by Mark Bianculli and VJ Boyd, who will executive produce with Carol Mendelsohn and Julie Weitz.
