This series written by Bess Wohl whose pilot is shot right now, follows the first four women to graduate from Boston's Police Academy in 1978 with Joanne, lesbian, which will be played by the actress of «True Blood» Rutina Wesley.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, guarded, professional and private about her personal life (largely because she's gay), the character has high standards — mostly because she feels that it's necessary. As a black woman, she knows she has to work harder and be better than everyone in the department. Raised in a tough Boston neighborhood, she's seen her share of violence. But she's worked hard to get where she is, going after her convictions, her strength challenged by the realities of the political landscape.
Actresses Lauren Ambrose and Cody Horn are also part of the cast that may be developed in a full series soon.
