Comments Off on BACKSTROM: Genevieve Angelson Set As the New Female Lead

The upcoming Fox series BACKSTROM (which has already had a crazy development journey) has found a new female lead: a rep for the show confirms that Genevieve Angelson has joined the show.

Angelson will play Detective Nicole Gravely, a role that was originally played by Mamie Gummer in the CBS version of the pilot. Detective Gravely is Backstom (Rainn Wilson)’s second-in-command, and has to deal with his constant, um, questionable behavior.

TV viewers may recognize Angelson from her recurring role on HOUSE OF LIES or guest spots on THE GOOD WIFE, ARMY WIVES, or THE GLADES.

BACKSTROM will debut on Fox during the 2014-2015 season.
