Bex Taylor-Klaus is now on the right side of the law: The Arrow and Scream TV series vet will star opposite Stephen Dorff in the Fox drama pilot Deputy, our sister site Deadline reports.
The project centers around deputy Bill Hollister (Dorff), a career lawman who becomes acting sheriff of Los Angeles County when the current sheriff dies. Taylor-Klaus will play the sarcastic, “quietly badass” deputy Breanna Bishop, replacing Jasmine Kaur (Insecure), who was originally cast in the role.
