Shemar Moore is to star in a new CBS drama following his departure from ‘Criminal Minds’.
‘S.W.A.T.‘ is an action/drama series produced by Aaron Thomas, Shawn Ryan, Marney Hochman, Neal Moritz, Pavun Shetty and Danielle Woodrow.
Like ‘Minds’ the show is housed by CBS and stands as a televised remake of the Samuel L. Jackson-fronted flick of the same name.
Moore will star in the reboot, playing S.W.A.T. team leader, Lt. Dan “Hondo” Harrelson, a man who is “torn between loyalty to the streets and duty to his fellow officers” when he is tasked to run a highly trained unit that is “the last stop for solving crimes in Los Angeles.”
