Lou Diamond Phillips Cast in Lifetime TV Pilot

Digital Spy is reporting that Stargate Universe star Lou Diamond Phillips has joined the cast of a yet-to-be-titled police drama for Lifetime, produced by Sony TV.

Phillips will be playing a police lieutenant in the series, which features Sherry Stringfield (ER) and Jamie-Lynn Sigler (Sopranos) as police detectives Molly Collins and Brooke Kross, who’ll “investigate the city’s most high-profile crimes while navigating their divergent personal lives.” Phillips’ character is these two detectives’ boss. Josh Berman (CSI) will be the pilot’s producer.

Congratulations, Mr. Phillips!

Meanwhile, Phillips is in Vancouver filming SGU episode 2.15 “Seizure” with guest stars David Hewlett and Robert Picardo.

New episodes of Stargate Universe return to Syfy on Tuesday, September 28, at 9 PM ET, starting with “Intervention”, which picks up where things left off in the show’s first season finale.
