Bassett as Five-0

November 19, 2010

Angela Bassett is returning to TV! Not that she’s particularly known for TV, but to know that one of the world’s best actresses has a steady gig does my heart good. The show in question is a pilot for ABC called One Police Plaza. The show will be produced by Mark Gordon (Grey’s Anatomy, Army Wives).

The show is, again, just in development, so there’s no promise that it will get picked up, but with Bassett – arguably one of the best actresses working today (I am still bitter over her Best Actress loss at the 1994 Oscar telecast) – in the lead, they would be stupid to not make it happen. The show’s premise is that Bassett will play New York City’s first police commissioner.

Another police show? Yawn. Bassett in another police show? Much better. Bassett is another police show reminiscent of Kyra Sedgwick’s The Closer? Brilliant. Let’s cross our collective fingers.
