The series follows Regina Haywood, the newly promoted police captain of East New York, an impoverished, working class neighborhood at the eastern edge of Brooklyn. She leads a diverse group of officers and detectives, some of whom are reluctant to deploy her creative methods of serving and protecting during the midst of social upheaval and the early seeds of gentrification.

Production

Finkelstein and Flynn are writing and exec producing. Skyemac Productions’ Mike Robin, exec producer on series including All Rise and Major Crimes, is also exec producing alongside Self Made: Inspired By The Life of Madam C.J Walker exec producers Mark Holder and Christine Holder of Wonder Street.

The series will be rated in the pilot season for a possible release in the 2022/2023 tv season.

Amanda Warren has been tapped as the lead in the CBS drama pilot East New York.

In East New York, co-written by William Finkelstein and Mike Flynn, Regina Haywood (Warren) is the newly promoted deputy inspector of East New York, an impoverished, working-class neighborhood at the eastern edge of Brooklyn. She leads a diverse group of officers and detectives, some of whom are reluctant to deploy her creative methods of serving and protecting during the midst of social upheaval and the early seeds of gentrification.

For former street cop Regina, sharply dressed and serious about her job, her father and her dog are the only two souls with whom she can be fully vulnerable.

Ruben Santiago Hudson, Richard Kind, Lavel Schley and Olivia Luccardi have been cast as series regulars opposite Amanda Warren in the CBS drama pilot East New York.

Hudson will play Marvin Sandeford who could have become a boss or a detective, but he never wanted to be anything but a street cop. He’s very opinionated and given to quick, intractable judgments, but not without compassion. No one knows as much about East New York as he does.

Kind plays Capt. Stan Yenko, a captain who hides his loneliness and insecurity behind a gregarious demeanor and quest for camaraderie with everyone around him.

Schley portrays Andre Bentley, a patrol officer trainee from an upper middle-class background in Westchester. He was never supposed to become a cop, which was half the reason he became one.

Luccardi has been cast as Brandy Quinlan, a patrol officer who had a working class upbringing until she ran away from an abusive home and lived on the street. She’s a go-getter and driven to prove herself.

Finkelstein and Flynn executive produce with Mike Robin of Skyemac Productions, Christine Holder and Mark Holder of Wonder Street. Andrew Maher of Skyemac is co-executive producing. Warner Bros. Television is the studio.
