Produced by Lionsgate and Universal Television, the pilot is inspired by Get Christie Love! — the cult 1974 blaxploitation-themed TV movie and subsequent series.

From Power creator/showrunner Courtney Kemp and producers Vin Diesel, Debra Martin Chase and Shana C. Waterman, it’s an action-packed, music-driven drama that centers on Christie Love (Kylie Bunbury), an African-American CIA agent who leads an elite ops unit. She transforms into whomever she needs to be to get the job done, especially when it’s down to the wire and the stakes are life and death.

Cardenas will play Jonas, the oldest member of the counterintelligence unit.

The actor’s recent credits include Damnation, Snowfall and Frequency.
