From Black Voices — Boris Kodjoe has been cast in the ABC’s pilot ‘Georgetown,’ an ensemble drama about young staffers on Capitol Hill.
The hourlong project, written byWill Fetters, is described as a sexy soap centered around the young people behind the power brokers of Washington, DC. It centers on Andrew Pierce (played by Jimmy Wolk), an effortlessly charming and brilliant Yale graduate and the youngest Presidential speech-writer on record who was once idealistic but is now cynical as he sees how compromise has eroded the administration’s promise.
Kodjoe will play the Democratic president’s fiercely intelligent senior adviser, stated Deadline.com.
Kodjoe’s last TV series, the J.J Abrams‘ NBC spy drama ‘Undercovers,’ which paired him with Gugu Mbatha-Raw, was cancelled in 2010 after low ratings. Only 11 of 13 episodes were aired.
