The police procedural set in a world ruled by magic has added Esai Morales (Caprica) as the Detective Chief Inspector who heads up the eponymous police house.

The River

Thomas Kretschmann (Grimm Love, Resident Evil: Apocalypse) will play an ex-military badass who leads an expedition into the Amazon, looking for a missing explorer.


The period procedural that casts Edgar Allan Poe as a homicide detective has added Marco Grazzini (Nikita) to its ranks, as the boyfriend of Sarah, Poe's muse.  Grazzini will also have a guest shot in the CW's zombie drama, Awakening.
