- Jon Seda was just cast in a new show on NBC.
- The former Chicago P.D. star will play the lead role in La Brea.
Calling all Chi-hards!
Variety reports that the actor will return to NBC in La Brea, a drama pilot headed by writer and executive producer David Appelbaum.
The intense storyline follows the struggles of a family torn in half by a mysterious sinkhole that suddenly appears in Los Angeles. Actress Natalie Zea will star opposite Jon as a desperate mother who, along with her son, gets separated from her husband (Michael Raymond-James) and their daughter (Zyra Gorecki).
Half of the family inexplicably finds themselves living in a prehistoric world with a group of strangers, where they must fight to survive and try to find a way back home.
Jon will play the part of Dr. Benjamin Glass, a former Navy Seal "who knows how to take charge." This is his first major TV role since leaving the Chicago franchise in 2019, where he spent seven years as a series regular on Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D., and Chicago Justice. While the actor has not yet issued a statement about the new show, he seemingly confirmed the news by sharing an article about it on Twitter.
Los Angeles is going to be a lot different than Chicago (especially in a primeval world)—but we know that Dawson can handle anything!
