The "Training Day" actress will play Karen Beach, described in a news release as "a police officer, and the sole female member of the Ravens cop gang, who has [the] tendency to overcompensate by out-toughing the macho company she runs with and gets involved in a forbidden love affair with a member of a rival cop gang."
Ryan Kwanten, Cory Hardrict, Arlen Escarpeta and Sean Bean will star alongside her on the show, which was created by Joe Halpin, who worked as a Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department deputy in South Central for 17 years.
The series is executive produced by Halpin, Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson and his G-Unit Film & Television Inc., Todd Hoffman and Dennis Kim of Storied Media Group.
Jeff T. Thomas is scheduled to direct the premiere episode of "The Oath."
