Tisha Campbell is in a bittersweet space.
For, as she prepares to engage in what may be a bitter divorce, she finds her career has hit a new sweet spot now that ABC has asked her to front a potentially groundbreaking new series.
Regina King, Robin Roberts and Pam Veasy are to thank for the show’s conception and have asked Tisha to play one of five sisters employed by the New York Police Department to combat crime.
Alas, turmoil and drama strikes when the sisters are forced to battle their personal demons as the pressure of their high-risk job rises with every passing day.
Tisha and Amirah Vann are the first two actresses enlisted to star in the project and are to welcome three more players in the coming weeks.
Tisha’s character is Sergeant Anise Kendrick-Morrison, “a witty, tough, and outspoken Patrol Officer with a sharp sense of humor. She is immensely proud of her family, especially her four sisters who are all in the NYPD. The first to join the force, she proudly patrols her own childhood neighborhood in Queens.
The show is yet to be titled.
