From Gina Prince-Bythewood and Brian Grazer, Shots Fired examines the dangerous aftermath of racially charged shootings in a small Tennessee town. Leslie will play Sarah Ellis, a government aide who works directly for Governor Eamons. Hard-working and a go-getter, Sarah wants to change the world and make money doing it.
Perez will recur as James Ruiz, who works at the Department of Justice. In addition to Lathan, Conor and Perez join recently cast DeWanda Wise.
Leslie is coming off an arc on Epix’s upcoming series Graves, opposite Nick Nolte, Skylar Astin and Chris Lowell. She’s repped by Gersh, Anonymous Content and Morris Yorn. Perez is with Brio Entertainment.
