Teyonah Parris stays booked and busy!

The “Survivor’s Remorse” alum has been cast as the female lead in the CBS drama pilot, “Murder.”

Via Variety:

The series explores crime through the unique and often conflicting perspectives of cops and killers, witnesses and victims, friends and family. Shot like a true crime documentary, the series invites the audience inside the emotional journey of an investigation, allowing them to discern the truth and judge the suspects’ guilt or innocence for themselves.

Parris will star as Det. Ayana Lake, a rising star in the NYPD whose keen intellect and quick, analytic mind are the keys to her success. But when she’s partnered with instinctive, intuitive Det. Jack Garrity, styles and personalities sometimes clash.

Congrats to Teyonah! I’m looking forward to checking out the show.
