BSG's Bamber for '17th Precinct'
TVLine reports that BATTLESTAR GALACTICA’s Jamie Bamber has been cast in BSG producer Ron Moore’s 17th PRECINCT pilot for NBC.
The show, described as a ensemble police drama, set in a fictional town named Excelsior, “where magic and with supernatural elements rule over science”.
Jamie Bamber is set to play Caolan, a crime scene detective. He’s coming off OUTCASTS, a UK SF series that hasn’t yet hit American shores.
Already cast is Stockard Channing (PRACTICAL MAGIC, BATMAN BEYOND), who the role of Mira, a former homicide detective, now working in the robbery division.
Sounds a bit like the dark “magical” world of CAST A DEADLY SPELL (1991), or the recent, comic book-based PARADOX, which starred genre vet Kevin Sorbo as a policeman in a world where magic, rather than science held sway.
