The Chi has some new company. Deadline reports Armando Riesco has joined the upcoming Showtime series.
From Lena Waithe, Elwood Reid, and Common, the drama “is a coming-of-age story that follows a half-dozen interrelated characters in the South Side of Chicago.”
Riesco will play a seasoned homicide detective working the turbulent streets of Chicago’s South Side neighborhoods. When one of his street informant’s kids gets murdered, he mistakenly gives him information that leads to a senseless death of yet another kid. This detective has a soft spot for some of his regulars and finds himself torn at times between his colleagues and his neighborhood.”
