Angela Bassett has landed the lead role in ABC’s drama pilot Identity.
Identity is based on a British series and revolves around an elite police unit specializing in identity-related crimes. Bassett will play Martha, the special agent in charge of the unit. The project is being developed by producer Mark Gordon (Criminal Minds, Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice) and writer John Glenn (Eagle Eye).
If you’d like to catch Bassett in action before the series [which has not yet received a premiere date] hits airwaves, you can catch her in the upcoming films Jumping the Broom and The Green Lantern.
