Sony Pictures Television has two new stars. Deadline reports Jerry O’Connell and Sydney Poitier have joined the studio’s upcoming TV show Carter.
From writer Garry Campbell and John Tinker, the crime procedural “centers on Harley Mackay (O’Connell), a detective on a hit American TV show who is forced to return to his sleepy hometown after an embarrassing public meltdown in Hollywood. Once back, Carter taps into his acting experience to become a real-life detective, partnering with long-time friend and no-nonsense veteran of the force, Sam St. Clair (Poitier).”
Carter is being produced by Sony Pictures Television Networks for a global audience, which includes the channel AXN. Production is set to begin next month in Canada.
