Lance Gross is headed to ABC.
The actor has secured a series regular role in ABC’s cop dramedy pilot The Trustee.
Lance will star opposite Meaghan Rath.
Written by [Jay] Scherick and [David] Ronn and directed by Michael Engler, “The Trustee” is described as a fun, female buddy cop comedy about Eliza Radley (Rath), a driven but stubborn detective who finds unlikely help from her precinct’s trustee, a larger-than-life ex-con finishing out her prison sentence doing menial tasks for the police department. Although these two have completely opposing views on crime and punishment, an entertaining and successful partnership is born. Gross will play police detective J.D. Hayes, who’s not only a colleague of Radley, he’s also dating her. He delights in her toughness but is not so thrilled when an old tragedy threatens their relationship, which he wants to take to the next level.
