Vince Gilligan’s new CBS crime drama Battle Creek has cast The White Queen’s Janet McTeer.
Battle Creek is the next series from Breaking Bad creator Gilligan. David Shore serves as showrunner and last week cast fellow House alum Kal Penn as a detective. The logline: “When two detectives with very different world views are teamed up, they must answer the question: is cynicism, guile and deception enough to clean up the semi-mean streets of Battle Creek, Michigan in the face of a complete lack of resources; or is the exact opposite true - it takes naïveté, trust and a boatload of resources?”
McTeer will play Guziewicz, the commander of the Battle Creek police department. McTeer is a British actress who was recently nominated for a Golden Globe nomination for her performance in Starz’ The White Queen. She also co-starred in the film The Woman in Black.
