The Miami-set medical procedural follows top private pathologist Dr. Beaumont Rosewood Jr. (Morris Chestnut) and tough-as-nails Detective Annalise Villa (Jaina Lee Ortiz) as they investigate East Miami PD’s most challenging cases.
Luckett, will play Tawnya, a new love interest for Rosewood. Spirlin will portray Kayla, Tawyna’s daughter, a sharply intelligent and precociously cynical girl who views Rosewood, the new man in her mom’s life, with open suspicion. However, Kayla soon begins to realize that Rosewood is a stand-up guy.
In addition to Chestnut and Ortiz, they join Lorraine Toussaint, Gabrielle Dennis, Anna Konkle and Domenick Lombardozzi and new cast addition Eddie Cibrian.
Luckett was an original member of R&B girl group Destiny’s Child, performing with the group for seven years and earning two Grammy Awards for the single “Say My Name.” Her 2006 debut album, LeToya, went platinum, and her third album is set for release later this year. On TV she most recently starred in Single Ladies and recurred on Ballers. She next will be seen in the feature Until We Meet Again with Janel Parrish and Jackson Rathbone.
Spirlin is repped by Pantheon and Link Entertainment.
