Aasif Mandvi, everyone’s preferred correspondent, has been chosen to star in “The Mission,” the newest pilot from ABC. The part of Stanley Mudd, a devoted police officer in Harbor Division, will be played by the comedian, actor, and writer.
The drama series stars Lynn Collins as Oriana “Ori” Cloverfield, a rookie police officer. Kris D. Lofton, who also appears in the show, plays Alvin “Deets” Dietrich, a driven officer who aspires to become a detective one day. These three officers and their coworkers navigate the challenging life of an officer in “The Mission.” It tracks their emotional ups and downs. Of course, with Mandvi in the cast, good comedy may be expected as well!
Michael Offer is the show’s director, and Jason Richman is its writer. Along with David Hoberman, Todd Lieberman, and Laurie Zaks, Richman is the show’s producer.
