The actor, who was also seen on Scandal, will be part of a cast that also includes Griffin Freeman, Archie Panjabi, Austin Stowell, Erin Moriarty, and Rita Wilson.

Directed by John Requa and Glenn Ficarra from a script by Sheldon Turner, the drama series, according to the industry website, concerns “Matt Kincaid (Stowell), the Junior Counsel of a prestigious Illinois university who must deal with an out-of-control scandal when a female student, Cassie (Moriarty), accuses several star football players of sexual assault.

From the football coaches and boosters who wield outsize influence, to a university administration under siege, the series explores the high-profile controversy as well as the corrosive, dangerous nature of institutional power.”
