Well, it didn’t take Kiele Sanchez long to find her next television project…
The 37-year-old half-Puerto Rican actress is following up her four-season run on A&E’s The Glades with a role on DirecTV’s gritty drama series Navy St.
Sanchez, who is starring in the horror thriller The Purge: Anarchy later this year, and Nick Jonas have been added to the 10-episode original series from Byron Balasco and Endemol Studios.
The dark family drama is set against the backdrop of Navy Street, a Venice, California-based mixed martial arts (MMA) gym owned by Alvey Henderson (portrayed by Frank Grillo), a former fighter who never made it big due to a drug addiction but is now sober.
Sanchez will play Lisa Prince, Alvey’s long-time girlfriend.
Meanwhile, Jonas will play Nate Henderson, Alvey’s youngest son and the prized fighter at the gym, joining Jonathan Tucker who plays Alvey’s eldest son.
Filming is scheduled to begin in Los Angeles on May 5 for a fall premiere.
