S.W.A.T: Jay Harrington Joins Cast For CBS Reboot

Deadline is reporting that Jay Harrington is the latest name to join the cast of CBS pilot S.W.A.T, inspired by the 2003 film of the same name.


The pilot is set to focus on a locally born and bred S.W.A.T. lieutenant who is torn between loyalty to the streets and duty to his fellow officers when he’s tasked to run a highly-trained unit that is the last stop for solving crimes in Los Angeles.


Jay Harrington (whose credits include Better Off Ted and Code Black) will be playing the role of David “Deacon” Kay. Level-headed and competent, Deacon is an experienced SWAT officer who’s ready for a commanding role. What seems like an obvious promotion is taken away from him when Hondo is upped for seemingly political reasons. But when he’s offered his own squad, he’s torn between a potential upgrade and his loyalty to his team.


The pilot has been written by Aaron Rahsaan Thomas, who will serve as executive producers alongside Shawn Ryan, Marney Hochman, Neal H. Moritz, Pavun Shetty, Danielle Woodrow and Justin Lin. The drama is a co-production between  Sony Pictures Television and CBS Television Studios. Harrington will be joining a cast that includes Stephanie SigmanShemar Moore, Lina Esco and Kenny Johnson for the pilot.
