Taye Diggs Lands Leading Role In TNT Series

black-actors-taye-diggsTaye Diggs has landed the lead role on a TNT murder history show to be titled Murder In The First. Kathleen Robertson (Boss) will costar.

The series revolves around two seemingly separate high profile murder cases, and the surrounding police investigation, arrest, and trial. Here’s a bit more about Taye Diggs’ character, Terry Seagrave, posted on Uptown Magazine via HuffPost.

“Diggs will star as Terry Seagrave, a homicide detective who is dealing with his wife’s terminal illness. For Terry, being a cop is his one chance to live right and “do good,” and the job keeps him focused and off the sadness that tends to preoccupy his thoughts. Robertson will portray Hildy Mulligan, Terry’s partner, who is described as self-assured and sexy without knowing it. She’s divorced with a young daughter and a fearless detective who is keenly aware that her partner is grappling with a difficult situation.”

The same article reports that both Diggs and Robertson received the chance to star in various other pilots before agreeing to do this show, so they must have seen something pretty enticing in the script. Taye Diggs will also be appearing in the sequel The Best Man Holiday, which releases on November 15, 2013, so he’s having no trouble filling his schedule after finishing up on Private Practice.
