GhostbustersErnie Hudson is set to co-star opposite Justin Kirk and Natalie Martinez in Fox’s drama pilot APB, from writer David Slack and Sleepy Hollow co-creator/executive producer Len Wiseman.

Inspired by the July New York Times Magazine article “Who Runs the Streets of New Orleans,” APB explores what happens when an enigmatic tech billionaire, Gideon Reed, (Kirk) purchases a troubled police precinct in the wake of a loved one’s murder.

Hudson will play Sgt Ed Conrad, a gruff, grumpy teddy bear veteran cop with the 13the Precinct. He’s not a fan of the arrival of the precinct’s new “owner,” Gideon Reed, (Kirk). Martinez plays Detective Amelia Murphy.

Slack executive produces with Wiseman, who is directing. Also executive producing the project are David Bernardi, Dennis Kim, Todd Hoffman and Robert Friedman.

Original Ghostbusters co-star Hudson will next be seen in the upcoming female remake and on Epix’s first original series Graves. He is repped by Michael McConnell at Artists International Management and APA.
