Hightown - James Badge Dale to Star in Starz Series

James Badge Dale (13 Hours, World War Z, The Pacific) has been cast to star as the male lead opposite Monica Raymund in Starz's Hightown per Deadline. The project hails from Rebecca Cutter (Gotham), Gary Lennon (Power) and Jerry Bruckheimer TV. Production for the show starts in March. Lennon will showrun the series whilst Cutter will pen the pilot.

Hightown is a crime drama set amid the drug trade on Cape Cod, touched off when a body washes ashore and discovered by an irreverent National Marine Fisheries Service officer, Jackie Quinones (Raymund), who is determined to help solve the murder even if the state cops want her nowhere near the case.

Dale will play Detective Ray Abruzzo, a Massachusetts State Trooper assigned to the Cape Cod Drug Task Force, who questions Quinones as the body she found was his C.I. He's determined to crack the case and wants to avenge the death of his C.I.
