Kal Penn is the first actor to be cast in CBS’ Battle Creek, a detective drama from Breaking Bad mastermind Vince Gilligan and House creator David Shore, EW has confirmed.

This marks a reunion for Penn — best known for the Harold & Kumar movies — and Shore, who worked together on House from 2007 to 2012. While the series will focus on the relationship between a detective and an FBI agent in Battle Creek, Michigan, Penn plays a different detective who bumps heads with the fed.

Battle Creek is set to debut in the fall on CBS. The casting news was first reported by Deadline.
