Uzo Aduba has lined up an exciting new project!
The 40-year-old actress and three-time Emmy winner will star in the new drama series Low Country for CBS Studios.
The new series is written by Dewayne Jones (Evil, Your Honor) and executive produced by The Good Wife creators Robert and Michelle King. Uzo is also serving as an executive producer and she signed a multi-year producing deal with CBS Studios to produce other projects for the studio, according to Deadline.
In Low Country, Uzo will play “the least likely deputy sheriff in South Carolina’s low country. Black and openly gay in a white southern stronghold, Shirley has been underestimated her whole life until now, when she takes on the wealthy white crime family that has kept everyone in the grip of fear.”
Uzo is also starring in the upcoming HBO reboot of In Treatment and the Amazon anthology series Solos. She won two Emmys for her work in Orange Is the New Black and a third Emmy last year for Mrs. America.
