CITY ON A HILL, a new Showtime series starring Kevin Bacon and Aldis Hodge, has added Sarah Shahi.

Shahi—who recently starred on NBC’s REVERIE and whose credits include PERSON OF INTEREST, THE L WORD, and FAIRLY LEGAL—will recur on the drama as Rachel Behnam, “a street-smart investigator for the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office.”

Per Showtime, “CITY ON A HILL is set in the early 1990s Boston, rife with violent criminals emboldened by local law enforcement agencies in which corruption and racism was the norm. In this fictional account, assistant district attorney Decourcy Ward (Hodge) arrives from Brooklyn and forms an unlikely alliance with a corrupt yet venerated FBI veteran, Jackie Rohr (Bacon). Together, they take on a family of armored car robbers from Charlestown in a case that grows to involve, and ultimately subvert, the entire criminal justice system of Boston. Produced by SHOWTIME, CITY ON A HILL also stars Jonathan Tucker (Kingdom), Mark O’Brien (Halt and Catch Fire), Jill Hennessy (Crossing Jordan), Lauren E. Banks (Instinct), Amanda Clayton (Tyler Perry’s If Loving You Is Wrong), Kevin Chapman (BROTHERHOOD) and Tony® Award nominee Jere Shea (Passion), with Kevin Dunn (Veep) recurring.”

CITY ON A HILL is set to debut later this year on Showtime.
