Amanda Brooks has landed a major recurring role on the second season of NBC’s Aquarius.

The gritty 1960s drama focuses on a cop (David Duchovny) who goes undercover to track Charles Manson and the Manson Family before their infamous murder spree. Brooks will play Sharon Tate (based on the real-life actress), the young beautiful model and up-and-coming movie star, who is pregnant with her husband Roman Polanski.

Brooks recently wrapped shooting a series regular role on the Showtime pilot Chicago, written by Lena Waithe (Dear White People) and produced by Common and Aaron Kaplan. Brooks is repped by SMS Talent and LINK.
