Congratulations Julie!

Defiance star Julie Benz is set as a regular role opposite Bill Paxton in CBS’ drama pilot Training Day.

Written by Will Beall and directed by Danny Cannon, Training Day is a present-day reimagining of Antoine Fuqua’s acclaimed 2001 feature. Set 15 years after the film left off, the show centers on an idealistic young African-American police officer, Kyle Craig, who is appointed to an elite squad of the LAPD where he is partnered with seasoned, morally ambiguous detective Frank Rourke (Paxton).

Benz will play Holly McCabe, an unapologetic Hollywood madam who looks like a woman half her age and takes pride in how well she treats her girls. In addition to having a tacit understanding with Frank, they are also a couple. Drew Van Acker, Katrina Law and Lex Scott Davis also co-star.

Dexter alumna Benz is coming off a three-season stint as a lead on the Syfy series Defiance. She also is wrapping a recurring role on CBS’ Hawaii Five-0. Benz is repped by Paradigm, Vincent Cirrincione & Associates and Meyer & Downs.

Showrunner Barry Schindel, Fuqua and Beall executive produce Training Day with Jerry Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman for WBTV, Fuqua Films and Jerry Bruckheimer TV. KristieAnne Reed is co-executive producing.
