Complications star Jason O’Mara is set as the co-lead opposite Bokeem Woodbine in A&E’s hip-hop crime drama pilot The Infamous. Written by Joshua Zetumer and directed by Anthony Hemingway, the project revolves around two complicated men on a collision course: an ambitious reformed gangster poised to break out of South Central (Woodbine) and the LAPD detective (O’Mara) hell-bent on taking him down. It will be set against real events in turbulent 1990s Los Angeles leading up to the LA Riots.
O’Mara’s Bill Slidell is a hard-charging LAPD officer who is notorious for attracting trouble. A good cop who believes himself to be morally upright, Bill also has some questionable views on race and mountains of family baggage to contend with. Emily Rios co-stars.
O’Mara played the leads in Fox’s Terra Nova and USA Network’s Complications. He was also a series regular on CBS’ Vegas and recurred on The Good Wife. O’Mara is repped by UTA, UK’s Independent Talent and Jackoway Tyerman.
