Jimenez previously starred in the Fox comedy series “The Mick.” She has also appeared on shows such as “Single Parents” and “Life in Pieces.” She is repped by Buchwald and 11:11 Entertainment.

Casella will play Dennis Laramie, a confident detective who thoroughly enjoys his place of seniority in the department. Casella has recently appeared on shows such as “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and “Ray Donovan.” He is also known for roles on “The Sopranos,” “Boardwalk Empire,” and “Doogie Howser, M.D.” He is repped by Innovative Artists and Ellipsis Entertainment Group.
