The cast is filling out on ABC’s drama pilot “L.A. Crime.” David Sullivan (“Argo”) has been cast in the role of Detective Arnold ‘Arnie’ Bukowski, joining previously announced actresses Erika Christensen and Taissa Farmiga.
Sullivan will play Bukowski, a crass, loudmouth detective in charge of heading up the ongoing investigation of a possible Sunset Strip serial killer, alongside cops Jack Roth (Adam Rothenberg) and Paco Contreras (Gabriel Luna).
The character-driven “true crime” procedural, written by Steven Baigelman and directed by Tom Shankland, is being produced by ABC Studios and Mandeville. The period drama will explore sex, politics and pop culture across different eras in Los Angeles history, with the first season set in the “rock ‘n’ roll, coke-infused revelry of the 1980s.”
Sullivan is represented by Principato-Young Entertainment.
