Jillian Murray (Cabin Fever: Patient Zero) has booked a heavily recurring role on CBS’ Code Black. The medical drama, written by Michael Seitzman and directed by David Semel, is based on Ryan McGarry’s feature documentary. It is set in the busiest and most notorious ER in the nation and revolves around four residents who are getting their first taste of ER medicine and the medical staff who mentor, teach and terrify them. Murray, repped by Joseph Le Talent Agency and LINK, will play Dr. Heather Pinkey, a sexy and smart cardiology resident and love interest to Mario (Benjamin Hollingsworth).
Keesha Sharp (Are We There Yet, Bad Teacher) is set as a recurring in Ryan Murphy’s FX’s American Crime Story: The People V. O.J. Simpson. Based on the book The Run Of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson, ACS: O.J. tells the story of the Simpson murder trial from the perspective of the lawyers. It explores the chaotic behind-the-scenes dealings and maneuvering on both sides of the case and how a combination of prosecution confidence, defense wiliness and the LAPD’s history with the city’s African-American community gave a jury what it needed: reasonable doubt. Sharp plays Dale Cochran, Johnnie Cochran’s loyal and loving wife. She’s repped by Genesis Entertainment Partners and Abrams Artists Agency.
Priscilla Faia (Rookie Blue) been cast as a series regular in Audience Network’s You Me Her, from Entertainment One Television. The series is described as a twist on the indie rom-com, a “polyromantic” comedy that centers on a three-way relationship — two of the parties a suburban married couple. Faia plays Izzy Silva, a Portlandian graduate student in her mid-20s who is coaxed into escorting by a wilder roommate. Both a hopeless romantic and a commitment-phobe after her parents’ messy divorce, Izzy gets more from her moonlighting gig than she’d care to admit.
