More movie actors are jumping from the big screen to television series. Once upon a time there was a stigma to go from film to tv but thankfully Hollywood is realizing work is work and Angela Bassett
can make any role work. Deadline.com is reporting:
Angela Bassett has come on board the drama project One Police Plaza, which is in development at ABC. The project, from ABC Studios and studio-based Mark Gordon Co., centers on New York City's first female commissioner, to be played by Bassett. Linda Fairstein and Kenneth L. Solarz are writing the script and will executive produce One Police Plaza with Gordon and Deborah Spera.
This is a role I'm looking forward to see Bassett tackle. But, she is not done with film, she has roles in Green Lantern
and Jumping the Broom, which includes Paula Patton and Tasha Smith
