McTeer will play a key member of the police department
The population of “Battle Creek” has inceased by one.
The CBS drama, from “Breaking Bad” creator Vince Gilligan and “House, M.D.” boss David Shore, has cast “The White Queen” actress Janet McTeer.
McTeer will play Commander Guziewicz, the person in charge of the Battle Creek Police Department.
The series, created by Gilligan with Shore as a showrunner, centers on two detectives with very different world views. When they are forced to team up, they must answer the question: is cynicism, guile and deception enough to clean up the semi-mean streets of Battle Creek, Michigan in the face of a complete lack of resources; or is the exact opposite true — it takes naïveté, trust and a boatload of resources?
McTeer joins a cast that also includes “House” alum Kal Penn, who's playing a local detective who loves being a Battle Creek cop.
The series comes from Sony Pictures Television and CBS Television Studios.
