Shemar Moore Back on TV In a New Series, Named "S.W.A.T."
Shemar Moore is coming back to a CBS near you.
The “Criminal Minds” alum will star in the network’s reboot of “S.W.A.T.,” and he will also serve as a producer on the pilot show.
Based on the movie of the same name, the pilot follows a S.W.A.T. lieutenant who is torn between loyalty to the streets and duty to his fellow officers when he’s ordered to run a highly-trained unit that’s the last stop for solving crimes in Los Angeles.
Moore will play the lead lieutenant, Daniel “Hondo” Harrelson, who is always ready for action. He has all the ability to become a leader although, he’s just not happy with the reason he just became one.
Moore starred on “Criminal Minds” at CBS since the show debuted in 2005, before leaving the series at the end of the eleventh season last year. Sources say there was tension on set between Moore and former star Thomas Gibson, who was fired from the show for an alleged physical altercation with a producer.
