City on a Hill - Sarah Shahi to Recur in Showtime Series



Sarah Shahi (Person of Interest, Reverie) has joined the cast of Showtime's City on a Hill in a recurring role per Deadline. Production begins in New York and Boston next month.

The 10-episode drama, set to premiere in 2019, was created by Chuck MacLean (Boston Strangler) and is based on an original idea by Academy Award® winner Ben Affleck. In the early 1990s, Boston was rife with violent criminals emboldened by local law enforcement agencies in which corruption and racism was the norm – and then it all changed in what was called the "Boston Miracle." In this fictional account, driving that change is assistant district attorney Decourcy Ward (Aldis Hodge), who comes from Brooklyn and forms an unlikely alliance with a corrupt yet venerated FBI veteran, Jackie Rhodes (Kevin Bacon). Together, they take on a family of armored car robbers from Charlestown in a case that grows to involve and ultimately subvert, the entire criminal justice system of Boston.

Shahi will play Rachel Behnam, a street-smart investigator for the Suffolk County District Attorney's office.

Shahi joins Jonathan Tucker, Mark O'Brien, Jill Hennessy, Lauren E. Banks, Amanda Clayton, Kevin Chapman and Jere Shea with Kevin Dunn recurring.

Shahi will also be recurring on ABC's The Rookie this season.
