Wood Harris To Star In Drama Pilot ‘The Mission’
Wood Harris has been cast in ABC’s cop drama pilot, The Mission. He will star opposite Lynn Collins.
Written by Jason Richman and directed by Michael Offer, 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 (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. The cast also includes Aasif Mandvi, Kris Lofton, Josh Randall, Vannessa Vasquez and Alexander Karim.
Harris is known for his infamous role on HBO’s The Wire. His other recent credits include VH1’s The Breaks and Bladerunner 2049.
