Justin Kirk and Eric Winter Cast in Fox’s Drama Pilot ‘A.P.B.’

Justin Kirk and Eric Winter have landed series regular roles in Fox’s “A.P.B.,” Variety has learned. “A.P.B.” revolves around a tech billionaire who purchases a troubled police precinct in the wake of a friend’s murder.

Kirk (“Weeds,” “Wayward Pines”) will play Gideon Reed, a multi-billionaire and creative genius with a childlike curiosity, whose awkwardness is balanced by an undeniable charm. After a tragic crime claims the life of a dear friend, Gideon buys a police precinct, and sets out to rethink everything about the way cops do business.

Winter (“The Ugly Truth,” “The Mentalist”) will play Sergeant Tom Murphy, a vice cop who’s a tough guy with a big heart. A family man, Tom is married to homicide detective Amelia Murphy (Natalie Martinez), with whom he has two children.

The series, from 20th Century Fox TV, is executive produced by David Slack, Len Wiseman, Dennis Kim and Todd Hoffman. Slack wrote the pilot which Wiseman will direct. The network picked up the drama to pilot back in January.

Kirk is repped by UTA, MGMT 360 and attorneys at Ziffren. Winter is repped by Gersh, BEP and attorney Bob Wallerstein.
