Vannessa Vasquez has found her safe place…
The 34-year-old Mexican American actress has been cast as a series regular roles opposite Josh Randall, Lynn Collins, Aasif Mandvi and Kris D. Lofton in ABC’s police drama pilot Safe Harbor.
Written by Jason Richman and directed by Michael Offer, Safe Harbor chronicles the colorful, complicated lives of cops on and off the beat as we follow them into harrowing, emotional and often humorous situations. It centers on Oriana “Ori” Cloverfield (Collins), who gave up a legal career to become a rookie cop — or so it seems.
Vasquez will portray Officer Esme Chiso, an officer at Harbor Division, who’s feeling conflicted about her brother, who’s now running with a dangerous gang.
Richman executive produces with Mandeville’s David Hoberman, Todd Lieberman and Laurie Zaks.
Vasquez played Camila Barios on Hulu’s East Los High and recently guest-starred on The Brave.
