The only thing missing from CBS’s social justice lineup in their new drama is an undocumented, transgender, Muslim immigrant.

Longtime ER star Noah Wyle has been tapped to star in a pilot episode for CBS’s new racially charged drama Red Line.

The potential hourlong drama follows the events that follow after a white Chicago police officer mistakenly shoots and kills a black doctor. The series would follow three different families with personal ties to the case with the aftermath of the tragic shooting being told from each perspective.

Ava DuVernay

A-list filmmaker Ava DuVernay is executive producing the potential project, along with powerhouse producer Greg Berlanti, who’s produced major TV series from fan-favorite Dawson’s Creek to the CW’s The FlashSupergirl, and Arrow. 

TV’s Shameless and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles star Noel Fisher has been cast as the white cop. – Breitbart
