As reported last week, Nazneen Contractor has joined the cast of the Ransom TV show, coming to CBS in the 2016-17 television season. She is set as Zara Hallam, an ex-cop. Production of Ransom began in Toronto last week and will move to France in the fall. A 13-episode drama created by David Vainola and Frank Spotnitz, the Ransom stars Luke Roberts, Sarah Green, and Brandon Jay McLaren.
THR reports Contractor, who was in the backdoor pilot of NBC‘s Chicago Justice, which aired as an episode of Chicago PD this past May, is leaving the Dick Wolf drama ahead of its series premiere. Contractor played Dawn Harper in the pilot, right-hand-woman to prosecutor Peter Stone (Philip Winchester). The Chicago Justice cast also includes: Joelle Carter and Carl Weathers.
What do you think? Are you disappointed that Contractor won’t be in the Chicago Justice TV series? Do you plan to watch Ransom when it bows on CBS?
