Lina Esco is reporting for duty…
The Latina actress has landed a series-regular role opposite Shemar Moore and Stephanie Sigman on CBS’ drama pilot S.W.A.T.
Written by Aaron Rahsaan Thomas and directed by Justin Lin and inspired by the 2003 film of the sane name, S.W.A.T. is described as an intense, action-packed procedural following a locally born-and-bred S.W.A.T. lieutenant, Daniel “Hondo” Harrelson (Moore), who is torn between loyalty to the streets and duty to his fellow officers when he’s tasked to run a highly trained unit that is the last stop for solving crimes in Los Angeles.
Esco will play Chris. Fueled by nerves, she is a skilled officer and exceedingly calm under pressure. She isn’t pleased with her leader’s sudden departure and a shift in power but doesn’t spend too much time focused on the negatives; the mission is the only thing that matters.
Esco plays Ava on Audience Network’s Kingdom and recently recurred on Flaked.
