Odessa Young is also set to topline the pilot, which Steve Golin, Michael Sugar and Tariq Merhab are producing for Anonymous Content, along with “Mr. Robot” producer Chad Hamilton. The potential series is based on the Black List script from writers Chris Hutton and Eddie O’Keefe who will also exec produce the project. Paramount TV is producing, and Brett Morgen will direct the pilot.
The show centers on the residents of a small town who grapple with the ruthless killing of a young girl and a teacher. Hardrict will play Officer Teddy Green, the police chief’s second in command — a competent detective who underestimated the small-town job. However, he’s sharp enough to spot something on a surveillance video that turns out to be a vital clue.
Hardrict has a number of films scheduled for release this year, including Legendary’s “Spectral” opposite James Badge Dale; “November Criminals” opposite Chloe Grace Moretz; and the Cross Creek Tupac Shakur biopic “All Eyez on Me.” He also has the Netflix film “Brotherly Love” on the horizon.
He is also starring in “Destined” and “Car Dog’s.”
Hardrict is repped by Paradigm, Authentic and attorney Karl Austen.
