Dennis Haysbert Lands Role in ‘Undercover’

Dennis Haysbert will soon be coming to a small screen near you, because the actor has just scored a part on BBC One’s Undercover. 

According to Deadline, the show is a six-part series about a man, played by Haysbert, sentenced to death after being falsely imprisoned for murder.

While he attempts to fight against the injustice, his friend Maya, portrayed by Sophie Okonedo, remains silent, wishing her partner would do the same.

It’s being filmed in Louisiana and the UK and will air on BBC America. No word yet on the release date or the rest of the cast, so stay tuned.
