More of the cast for the new “Joe Pickett” television series, based on the C.J. Box character and book series, was announced on Monday.
The cast will include David Alan Grier, Julianna Guill, Sharon Lawrence, Mustafa Speaks, Paul Sparks, Skywalker Hughes and Kamryn Pliva, according to Deadline.
These actors will all be series regulars in “Joe Pickett,” the new hour-long drama based on Box’s bestselling novels.
Grier, a veteran of the Fox Television series “In Living Color” and a number of movies including the 1995 version of “Jumanji,” will play Vern, a gregarious, larger-than-life former game warden.
Guill will portray Marybeth Pickett, wife to Joe and mother to two young daughters. Lawrence will play Missy, the mother of Marybeth.
Speaks will portray Nate, a former Special Ops solider. Sparks will play Wacey, an ex-rodeo cowboy with a slick charm who is about to begin his campaign for sheriff.
Hughes will portray Sheridan and Pliva will play Lucy, the Pickett children.
They will join New Zealand actor Michael Dorman, best known for his roles “The Invisible Man” remake and the Apple TV+ series “For All Mankind,” who has been cast as Pickett.
The series will follow Pickett and his family as they navigate the changing political and socio-economic climate in small town Wyoming while also investigating the schemes and secrets hidden in the area.
The series will air for a nine-month exclusive run on Spectrum.
Box is serving as an executive producer to the series, the second show produced from his works. The other, “Big Sky,” is currently airing on ABC.
