Vince Gilligan-David Shore CBS Drama Taps ‘Damages” Janet McTeer

“Damages” and “White Queen” actress Janet McTeer will star in “Battle Creek,” the CBS drama series from “Breaking Bad’s” Vince Gilligan and “House’s” David Shore.

The Oscar nominee joins Kal Penn in the crime drama that follows a detective and an FBI agent from different worlds who have to see if cynicism, guile and deception are enough to clean up the semi-mean streets of Battle Creek, MI.

Gilligan and Shore are exec producing with Mark Johnson for Sony Pictures Television and CBS Television Studios.

This is the first major U.S. broadcast role for McTeer, who is repped by Curtis Brown Group and The Schiff Co.

The Hollywood Reporter and Deadline Hollywood broke the news of the casting.
