Lately, it seems like all of the former cast members of Sons of Anarchy are taking on new roles – Ryan Hurst (Opie Winston, Sons of Anarchy) is joining the cast of WGN’s ‘Outsiders’, Ron Perlman (Clay Morrow, Sons of Anarchy) is making the movie ‘Moonwalkers’, Katey Sagal (Gemma Teller-Morrow, Sons of Anarchy) is bringing some mama drama to Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and Maggie Siff (Tara Knowles-Teller, Sons of Anarchy) is strutting her acting stuff in ‘Billions’; but they aren’t the only ones with a new gig to brag about. Sons of Anarchy’s own Drea De Matteo (Wendy Case) is heading on over to NBC to bring us ‘Shades of Blue’, a new police drama.
Drea will portray Tess Nazario, a detective with the NYPD. It’ll be interesting for us to see Drea playing a character on the right side of the law, this time around. She co-stars with Jennifer Lopez and Ray Liotta, to create the bad-cop turned FBI informant drama. While not written by our favorite, Kurt Sutter, the show looks to be packed full of action and twisted story lines.
“Shades of Blue” will premiere January 7, 2016 on NBC. Check out the trailer below, and tell us in the comments if you plan on watching! We’re excited to see Drea De Matteo back on television once again! How do you think she’ll do portraying a policewoman?
