Rockmond Dunbar Joins ABC Pilot ‘Doubt’

Rockmond Dunbar Joins ABC Pilot 'Doubt'

It’s that time of year when casting is underway for all the new television programs in development otherwise known as Pilot Season.   I am hoping that we can continue to report more faces of color will be making their way to into your homes. 

Rockmond Dunbar a television veteran known for his roles on: Sons of Anarchy, Soul Food, and The Game is joining what appears to be a hot property a new drama series entitled Doubt.  The legal drama written and executive produced by House creator David Shore was part of a bidding war between ABC and CBS

The drama centers on a former cop who’s now a cunning, but charming low-rent lawyer who uses his street smarts to work the system for his clients while battling his own demons and wooing his ex-wife.  Dunbar is not the former cop described, but instead the stated cops former partner and now best friend and confidante.  His role is described as co-starring, so hopefully we will see quite a bit of him. 

Not sure what this means for the possibility of his feature film directorial debut Pastor Brown and its possibilities for becoming a television series for Lifetime.  Many of you may have picked up this tidbit of information when Sergio interviewed him in January.  You can take a look at that HERE if you missed it.
